Heady notes of lychee dominate nose and palate. The mouthfeel is plump and rounded with a slick oiliness. With more air, some tangerine peel makes itself felt and stays pleasingly on the dreamy finish. Notions of candied tangerine linger long after the last sip.
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.
