This dry Riesling is Famille Hugel’s signature wine, which stands out for its finesse and clarity. The wine is an ideal partner for fish and seafood thanks to its wonderful balance and brightness. Dry and elegant, it expresses itself best on our steepest slopes with the most complex minerality. Grown in the sun-drenched region of Alsace in the east part of France. Riesling, a normally late-ripening grape, thrives in this in climate expressing incredible aromatics and complexity, while still producing dry wines. They can pair with a multitude of foods with spice, acidity, richer fish dishes, to light, bright vegetable driven meals or even heartier fare.

Critical Acclaim: 2018: 90 points Wine Enthusiast “A hint of lemon zest on the nose is followed by traces of apple and Mirabelle plum. On the palate, this triple notion of fruit unites into vibrant juiciness and lovely balance on a light, bright body. The finish is refreshing and dry.” Wine EnthusiastView all products by HugelCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING
