Softly scented notes of apricot compote entice the nose. The palate is honeyed and pliable, with layers of sweetness and richness. Fresh lemon oil acidity holds against that but overall accentuates the honeyed apricot notes that are the chief theme of this luscious wine.
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.
