Aromatic overtones of meadow flowers with just a touch of cotton candy hover over the lemony freshness. The palate balances mellow richness with taut acidity and creates a friendly tension between those poles. There is abundant apple fruit, both tart and sweet and a clean, dry finish that accentuates autolysis.
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.
