A flinty hint of reduction leads to a poised, juicy palate of tart apple, like a totally ripe Cox Orange Pippin, but utterly refreshing. Aromatic Amalfi lemon freshness offers more brightness while smoky glints add interest. There is a light touch here, leaving a fleetingly beautiful and yet lastingly memorable wine.
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.
