The Hugel Riesling is an intense pale green color, dominated with the green and pale yellow highlights of springtime tree foliage, all completed with a silvery sheen. The bouquet is still a bit discreet and fresh — it is harmonious, clear and well-stated, yet quite dense and fruity with hints of lime, fresh kiwi, lemon-grass, ‘Mirabelle’, greengage and a slightly mineral edge. This is a dry wine that is also fresh and lovingly thirst-quenching on the palate. It is well-balanced with a generous and well-formed structure underlined by the wonderful freshness and vigor which is so typical to this grape variety’s elegant temperament. The grapes are perfectly ripe.
Would make an excellent aperitif. Best served with turbot, sea bass, monk-fish, lobster, king prawns, seafood, sander, pike, salmon, scallops, marinated or raw fish carpaccio, goat’s cheese.
