There is an undoubtedly fragrant but somehow veiled nose of dried orange peel. The palate opens up fully into the comforting aromas of baked Bramley apples, highlighted by lots of lemon freshness. The concentrated midpalate has depth but no heaviness and is at its delicious, intense peak now, still full of glowing fruit.
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.
