Yeasty funk hangs heavy on the nose and will need time to clear. The palate underneath, however, shines with a cool, composed and serene brightness. This is taut, and as beautiful and fresh as a shooting star on a cold night, brightening everything around it while sticking to its energetic course. Tart apple and ripe citrus are at the core and create a well of future pleasure. A cool bone-dry and slender but beguiling Riesling.
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.
