A floral notion of orange blossom and ripe mandarin haunts the nose of this clean-cut Riesling. The flavors draw you into their deep, secret core that seems to speak of the elements themselves. Rounded hints of apricot make everything pliable while notes of blossom, citrus and stone shimmer. This is a paradigm of what Riesling can do in the right hands.
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.
