Wittmann 100 Hugel Riesling 2016
100 Hugel means ‘hundred hills’. It's an aromatic, dry wine with lively acidity and freshness. It's bright pale straw in the glass, and the nose displays good lift with floral top notes followed by some ripe tropical fruits, ripe lime and some honeyed characters. The palate shows flavours of ripe pineapple, tropical fruits and ripe citrus with a clean, crisp-acid finish. With its impeccable fruit/acid balance, it has a long aftertaste of tropical fruits, pineapple and citrus.
The Wine Front – Candied mixed citrus peel, frangipani, talc-like mineral scents. Easy appeal on first connection. Washy, juicy and brightly flavoured to taste. A rush of citrus and green apple zestiness coupled to a sparkling line of zesty acidity. Extra mouthwatering to finish. It’s not particularly complex or powerful, but its a blisteringly refreshing thing to drink.
