Hints of earth and yeast deliciously suggest themselves onto the typical green pear notes. They also haunt the palate and give real resonance to the textured palate. This manages to be rounded yet svelte. The finish is lasting and combines pear and herbal notes of sage and savory yeast.
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.
