Lovely freshness rises: pear peel and citrus leaf, grapefruit zest and ripe mirabelle plum. The palate holds the same lusciously ripe notions still in a very tight embrace, bound with the freshest zestiest lemon. Those opposing poles of luscious ripeness and boundless freshness on a dry palate create drama, tension and moreishness. This is clean and invigorating and will gain over the years. Drink now through 2030.
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.
