A touch of orange zest, honeysuckle and rose petals make for a gently aromatic opening. On the palate it is the sheer concentration of flavor that hits you, there seems to be a force of life straining to break free, which swishes across the dry palate in rich flavors of orange zest and florals. This is a vivid, arresting wine which is lovely now but sure has mileage. Drink 2018–2028.
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.
