Really tart but totally aromatic notes of Cox Orange Pippin apples fill the nose. The palate brings in riper and more generous fruit, assisted by the creamy bubbles and that lovely autolytic hint of butter pastry. The finish is rounded, soft, refreshing and dry, leaving you with the impression of ripe red apple.
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.
