Earth and citrus pith make for an untypical opening. The soft palate follows with far more fruit than expected, underscored by a dollop of sweetness that brings out perfumed apricot and ripe, yellow peach. The depth of fruit and its purity is beguiling, like a cloud of juicy, generous ripeness.
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.
