The nose is shy but the palate is an enticing, delicious clash of honeyed, sweet richness—think blossom honey and dripping caramel, with the tart lurid freshness of lemon oil. This is alive and enlivening in its contrast and moreishness. The finish is lip-smacking and long, holding secrets of honeyed apricots and pears.
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.
