A shy nose opens onto a fruit-driven, scented palate of honeyed pear. Flavors are delicate but well-defined, the purity of the honey notes is astonishing and appetizing. Balance comes from a golden vein of citrus freshness. This is subtle and sweet: you need to let this come towards you slowly and let the waves of balanced sweetness unfold. This is a very elegant, impressive vendange tardive.
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.
