Hugel Riesling 1998

Ah, lovely stuff.  If you are after a good Alsatian riesling, look no further than this wine (admittedly with 13 years of age on it now).  It has an aroma of lemons and attractive minerals.  The palate has that great combination of acidity and length.  This is a very smart wine indeed that is all class, and is capable of being glugged very quickly.  88 points (7.3/10).

Abv: 13%
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Yes
