Flavors of pear peel and tart citrus zest on the nose lead to a slightly spicy palate. Floral notes hover above everything, and mouthwatering freshness and appetizing bitterness around the edges gets all juices flowing. While there is texture there is no heaviness. It's a very appetizing, just off-dry wine with gentle subtlety.
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.
