Earth and yeast combine with savory herbs to make a very spicy opening that seasons the fruity, pear-scented palate. This is light but very peppery with overtones of chervil and lovage. The body is linear but very refreshing and very moreish.
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.
