Herbal notes of blossom rise from the glass, with a smoky, flinty accent. The palate presents a honeyed aspect, promising ripe fruit and lusciousness checked by citric pith and zest. It has a pleasant phenolic grip, with the spice of Demerara sugar and fir honey amid the citrus freshness. It tempts with a wild, exotic promise.
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.
