The heady savory note on the nose unites yeast and tarragon, celery and pepper, grapefruit and lemon; fragrance of hay and earth are hinted at, too. The palate continues this wonderful interplay and makes you thirsty for more. This manages to be rounded in a very slender, cool vintage but has the added verve of such years. A great joy to drink.
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.
