Eminently drinkable and very delicious, with a medium sweetness that balances out the acidity very well. Apples, pear, some hint of melon. Colour is very light, but sparkling and very enticing. This one is definitely better than the Hugel Riesling I had, which was itself already pretty nice, largely because of the greater sweetness levels that meets the acidity head on. It has a less neutral imprint compared to the Hugel, but this might because it is a late harvest (Spatlese). Much more intense than the Hugel, which is something I like, and much more delicious. All in all, a very, very good package. And all for below 60 SGD. Why didn’t I buy more of these?
