89 Points | International Wine Cellar , September 2012
Pale straw-green. Precise, perfumed aromas of white flowers, lime, chamomile, crystallized ginger and tequila. Then pure, refined and balanced, with sneaky concentration and lovely purity to the white stone, lemon and ginger flavors. Ripe mineral-driven acidity really extends the finish. This clocks in at 7.5 g/l total acidity (vs. 7.2 g/l in the 2011), but the must had 11 g/l and so the Hugels chose to do a partial malolactic fermentation. Offhand, I can't remember a better base riesling from Hugel, ever. Very well done!
