Hugel Riesling 2008
Food Match: sushi, soft cheeses, salmon, pork, fish, duck, crab, asian cuisine.
Bright pale yellow. Captivating nose offers stone fruits, minerals and flowers; more classic than the 2009. Denser on entry, then concentrated, energetic and harmonious in the middle, with good limey cut to the floral fruit flavors. Not as generous or open as the 2009 but this is tactile and gripping riesling with more length and lift. More acidity here too, and it appears to have helped preserve the wine's minerality. An excellent basic riesling.
