2005 Marcel Hugg Gewurztraminer

Price: $7.99 @ Trader Joe’s imported by Americal Beverage Group

What They Said:

Per the winery well nothing, but I did find their website. Think it may be new as I didn’t find this last time.

What I Think:

The second half of my Alsatian bargain pair and another winner. Flowers (I am terrible at identifying which ones) and some light fruit on the nose. In the mouth a nice dry style with a minerally backbone. A very nice wine and a perfect example of an Alsatian effort. Usually I try to pair this with Asian cuisine but this would go with nearly anything. This is a region I need to learn more about. Would love to do a side by side with this and the Santa Ynez I enjoyed so much. Maybe I will…

One thought on “2005 Marcel Hugg Gewurztraminer

  1. I just Googled the name and year of this wine. Had it with my folks over Christmas and we loved it so much I saved the bottle so I could find it again. I apparently forgot I purchased it at Trader Joe’s. I just hope they still have it. My grandfather’s family was from the Alsace region so this was a particularly delightful find.
