A touch of salted caramel appears before the flesh of ripe yellow apples takes over on the nose. The palate sings with freshness and presents a mousse of tiny pin-prick bubbles. The spicy but rich notion of salted caramel tantalizes again on a bone-dry palate. This wine is both weightless and profound, with lovely length and a lip-smacking finish.
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.
