Some yeasty funk hits the nose first. Underneath that sits and earthy, if slender, dry Riesling which has a subtle understated richness that seems very firmly anchored in earth. Pithy citrus zest frames and illuminates and promises future pleasure. This needs a little bottle age. Drink 2018–2030.
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.
