This is an absolute nectar! A golden wine, with delicious aromas and flavours of honey and quince. The sweetness is perfectly balanced with a lovely acidity keeping the wine fresh with a wonderful long finish.
This should be served at around 6ºC. SGN is a wine result in incredible hard work and attention to detail only produced in the greatest of years.
The wine is a late harvest wine signifying that the grapes have been left longer on the vine; as a result they shrivel concentrating the flavours and sugars and in exceptional years such as this one gain Noble Rot (botrytis). This not only produces outstanding and very rare wines but also gives the wine an almost unlimited ability to age.
The grapes are handpicked one berry at a time from a selection of the oldest plots in the Hugel estate in the heart of the Grand Cru Shoenenbourg.
