The grounded, earthy roundness of oak is immediately apparent on the nose, adding floral notes of hay and fresh field mushroom. On the pliable palate, aromatic, pale apple notes play with a touch of citrus and evocative hayflower notes. The body is light, with crisp freshness and a little midpalate texture. It finishes clean and bright.
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.
