Yeasty funk still clings to the nose. Underneath that there is a concentrated palate with lovely texture. Spicy pith with hints of grapefruit zest, almond peel and shy pear all play on the rounded powerful body. There is bundled force and energy here. Bright, enlivening and luminous freshness makes for a moreish, dry 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.
