There is a lovely note of wet earth before hints of fresh rose hip appear on the nose. The palate is both mellow with flavors of ripe red apple and fresh with spicy peppery tartness. This is light but frothy, full-flavored but not heavy— a lovely, easy apéritif with lots of red-apple fruit on the 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.
