The yeasty overtones of fermentation that still cling to this fresh wine are pervaded by lemony freshness. The palate is taut and almost austere with the briskness of that citrus freshness always at its core. There is an intriguing, savory fillip on the finish. Save this for a hot day.
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.
