The slight cloudiness signals a 'natural' wine, smelling fresh and phenolic, with hints of apple cider and yeast. The palate is bracing and dry, zesty and compelling with a really salty, moreish core. A great sense of purity pervades the palate that astonishes with a fluid, pliable and rather smooth palate. This is definitely off-piste but has bags of character.
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.
