The peel of ripe pears paired with a soft lemon freshness characterizes this somewhat earthy wine. The earthiness becomes stronger on the dry palate but is brightened by lemony acidity and a clean-cut finish.
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.
