The slightest whiff of flinty reduction shows how young this is. On the palate, this feels like a bubble containing all manner of fragrant citrus: heady, spicy bergamot, tangy Seville oranges, and pure, zesty lemon—all waiting to burst forth. For now there is a grapefruit freshness, and a juicy promise of aromatic, incisive citrus nirvana. There is something absolute in the clear-cut, pure finish. Drink as of 2020.
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.
