A wealth of notions hits the palate: baked apple, fir honey, lemon-scented caramel and burnt sugar. The palate does not hold back, either, and lets all these notions dance in swirls of dizzying richness. Caramel-crusted apricots glow in the background while everything is lit up with bright, fresh acidity, highlighting apricot, apple and honey.
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.
