Spicy edges and hints of heady white lily on the nose are bedded in soft, lemony freshness on the palate where a savory, salty note appears. There is concentration and purity, lip-smacking freshness but also glimpses of riper stone fruit. Lots is happening here; this is alive and probably still too young. Drink 2016–2020.
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.
