Faint hints of lemon meringue pie play on the nose. The palate is wonderfully light-footed and very slender. Crisp green-apple and citrus notes abound against the backdrop of biscuity notes of yeast. This dances on tiptoe and would make for an ideal, sprightly apéritif with all its crispness and its dry finish.
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.
