A vivid freshness rises from the glass, recalling the wet stones of a cool brook. The palate has a rounder aspect of ripe citrus and is imbued with the tantalizing bitterness of grapefruit and tangerine peel. The body is smooth and concentrated, anchored in freshness and that animating pith. Very moreish, but in an advanced adult way. The finish is whistle clean, lip-smacking, dry and moreish.
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.
