All the mellow charm of ripe red apples, both baked and fresh, plays on the nose. The palate displays the same mellow richness, cut by brisk lemon freshness. The fizz is fine and enhances the delicacy of the sumptuous flavors on the palate that manages to be both rich and slender. The utterly dry finish is full of glorious baked-apple notes.
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.
