Hugel Riesling Grossi Laue 2013
The merest suggestion of ripe apricot beckons through an aromatic layer of dried lemon zest. The bone-dry palate then proceeds to push both these poles-the spiky taut lemon and the dreamy balm-like apricot-to their extremes in a wonderfully expansive but toned body. Concentration and finesse aligned to inherent power is what speaks from just a mouthful of this stuff. This is weapons-grade Riesling that kills with charm alone. The pure dry finish is outstanding.
Bright and mouthwatering, with a finely meshed profile of blood orange and melon fruit, apple blossom and pickled ginger, this delivers a lingering, minerally finish of stone and spice. Very appealing. Drink now through 2028.
