Hugal Riesling 2007
Reasonable price for a classic Alsatian riesling. Dry, with citrusy finish and not so much acid to restrict it to a wine for meals.
Good, but slightly more acidic than called for. Got better as it warmed-up. A goog example of the region for the price
External Reviews for Hugal Riesling
Pale, bright color. Reticent, pure nose hints at citrus peel and mint. Quite tight in the mouth, with strong acidity keeping the grapefruit and stone flavors in check today. But this juicy wine finishes with plenty of verve and length. I wouldn't broach this until at least the summer of 2009. This has 7.8 grams of acidity after about 20% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation. A quaffable white, with lip-smacking acidity and flavors of lemon peel, apricot and white pepper. Clean, briny finish. Drink now through 2012. 2,500 cases imported. -AN
Sometimes we think Alsace is the best-kept secret in the wine world. This value bottling is a perfect example. It's a perfectly balanced dry Riesling with ripe peach and apricot aromas.
Attractively bright, pale yellow green in colour. A fragrant, clean, lively, refreshing wine, whose spring-like freshness of fruit and floral aromas makes it eminently quaffable.
