The scent of ripe Cox Orange Pippin apples is joined on the palate by fizzing, savory spice and lashings of white pepper in this unusual but fitting blend of Austria's chief varieties: Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. One brings spice and savory flavors, the other lots of verve and apple fruit. It has the freshness of 2014 and lots of personality. It should become a party favorite!
Reviews wines from Austria, Alsace and England
German-born but London-based, Anne Krebiehl MW is a freelance wine writer contributing to international wine publications. She also lectures, consults and translates and has helped to make wine in New Zealand, Germany and Italy. She adores acidity in wine and is thus perfectly suited to her Austria/Alsace/England beat. Her particular weaknesses are Pinot Noir, Riesling and traditional-method sparkling wines.
