Notes of citrus and crisp apple play on the nose. The palate is brisk with citrus and tart greengage fruit. The fizz is fine and creamy and acts as a counterpoint to the freshness, but the overall impression is one of sprightly, slender, lemony freshness. Ideal as a wonderful and enlivening summer apéritif.
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.
