Notes of fresh and bruised apple on the nose have an overtone of lychee. The palate is restrained but references all of these flavors very elegantly, underlining them with bright lemon freshness. The mousse is creamy and fine while the acidity has some welcome, refreshing spikiness. This is an ideal apéritif, full of life and zest—totally dry and mouth-watering.
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.
