There is a whiff of flint before the tangy nose reveals itself with orange and lemon zest. This has a sprightly, lively feel and a textured, dry palate where orange zest, lemon juice and tangerine freshness play against a fruit-drenched backdrop of chalky stone. This is chock-full of fruit and joy but also really fresh. Drink 2016–2025.
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.
