Although labeled as Hugl Weine, it seems clear that this wine comes from the Weingut Hugl-Wimmer. According to importer Kysela Pere et Fils, Ltd., the vintner is “a young family-run winery located in the north-east of Austria, in Ketzelsdorf-Poysdorf. The owners Sylvia and Martin Hugl aim to produce fruity, full-bodied wines that are typical of the region and the soils. They make use of the experience of their parents and combine it with their know-how and modern techniques to create high-quality wines.” And it appears that Weingut Hugl-Wimmer is not just another “family-owned” operation. On their own website, the Hugls state quite clearly that their parents and siblings also join in the work as needed. So it really is family-run.
Notes: The color of this Austrian white was a pale golden hue. The bouquet held scents of peach and nectarine. The body was light and acidity was fine. Alcohol was at 13.5%. On the palate I found peach, some citrus, notes of almond, grass, and just a touch of honey. It was a pleasant, refreshing glass of wine. I think it would make a nice accompaniment to a light white fish.
