A smoky, flinty touch of reduction joins ripe notes of green and yellow pear on the nose. The palate lets the pear fruit come to the fore but also presents a wonderfully textured body with a creamy, yeasty element and hints of ripe grapefruit. Zesty and fresh, the finish gives equal consideration to earthy and fruity elements.
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.
