Hugel is one of the world's great wines. A joy to savour and to fully appreciate its freshness and purity of style, a flavoursome Riesling that everyone should enjoy far more often. Made by those wonderful folks who invented Riesling, grapes are grown in a region that has been producing the world's most reasured white wines for millenia. Hugel is vinified exclusively from fruit grown to sites in and around Riquewihr, managed by vignerons under contracts which have lasted for generations. A fine match to all good seafood, poached, grilled or smoked.
Alsace as a winegrowing region was established by the Romans. Riesling grown here is healthy and highly aromatic, with remarkable natural acids that imbue vital crunchy expressions to the fine, classic wines. Grapes are taken in small tubs to the presses and filled by gravity, without any pumping or mechanical intervention. After pressing, the musts are cold settled and fermented in a combination of temperature controlled barrels and vats at 18°C to 24°C. Upon completion, batches are racked for natural clarification over the course of winter. The following spring, cmponents are lightly filtered and bottled for a spell of ageing under the Hugel estate cellars.
TASTING NOTES
Lovely pale straw hues. Fresh, clean lively aromatic expression, the bouquet quickly awakens the senses, lively with the appealing characters of Alsace Riesling, focused and clean. This dry, elegant, fresh young wine is lively, complex yet integrated, attractively fruit driven, green apples and gooseberry, citrus, grapefruits and lime, elderflower and spring blossom.
