Very tender notes of baked apple and faint hints of creamy autolysis rise from the glass. The palate is tart and brisk, reminiscent of white currant and pale lemon. Slenderness is enlivened by the dosage which lends overtones of elderflower. Fine bubbles add welcome creaminess and leave you thoroughly refreshed.
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.
