Hugel Classic Riesling 2017
For over 370 years and with 13-family generations the Hugel family has produced beautiful classic wines of Alsace. Known today for their passion and modern outlook, the dynamic Hugel family, located in the fortified village of Riquewihr, has earned a worldwide reputation for their Alsace wines. The grapes used to produce Hugel's Classic Rieslings come exclusively from estate owned vineyards or from growers under long term contract surrounding the village of Riquewihr. Made with sustainable farming practices and Clay and Limestone soils, the average age of the vines is 20+ years. 2016 is a classic vintage for current drinking or aging. Look for ripe stone fruit, green apple, mineral and ripe lemon zest complexities in this aromatic and exquisitely balanced Riesling. Fresh and totally thirstquenching, this is an outstanding example of dry Riesling.
Wine EnthusiastA hint of spring blossom precedes clean citrus notes on the nose of this refreshing wine. The palate is light but concentrated, fruity but dry and caressed by lemon brightness. The finish is dry and mouthwatering.
