Hugel ‘Classic’ Alsace Riesling 2014

Riesling from France - Alsace
Review Date : 05-Apr-2017
Very pale straw colour, lighter on the edge. The nose is very fresh and initially light with tightly bound aromas of delicate floral and citrus fruits overlaid by some SO2 and wet-stone, mouthwatering minerality. The fruit emerges with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the fruit is light in expression, quite tightly bound with flavours of limes, mineral and a little toastiness, along with SO2 elements. The mouthfeel is fresh and crisp with zesty acidity and a fine phenolic line provides linearity. The wine carries to a thirst-quenching minerally finish. A Riesling crafted for easy varietal expression that will grow in the bottle. 100% Riesling from the Riquewihr district, vines 22 y.o., fermented to 12.7% alc. and 3.7 g/L RS. 17.0+/20 Apr 2017 RRP $37.95
