The Society’s Vin d’Alsace 2012, France


You can almost dissect this wine and pick out the nuances of the different grape varieties…

The Society’s Vin d’Alsace (Hugel) 2012, France (£8.50 The Wine Society)
It’s the rich peachy nuttiness of Pinot Gris along with some of the exotic rose petal of Gewürztraminer that you can smell, but then when you taste it smokiness of Sylvaner kicks in, while the citrussy freshness of Riesling cleans up the finish. Nice wine, not as blowsy as some Alsace blends can be. B+
