Yeasty funk hovers above rich beckoning peach. The dry palate then expands and comprises taut, translucent citrus, exuding a cool calm charm. This is slender and fresh and shows concentration but no heaviness. It's a wonderfully fine-boned delicate Riesling of subtle power. Impressive long and whistle-clean 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.
