Subtle notes of concentrated rose petals and almost smoky honeysuckle come with a flinty aspect. The palate is defined by pithy lemon and bergamot interspersed with aromatic spices like lemon pepper and cardamom. It is the zesty core, however, that draws you in, with pithy grapefruit notes that last along with the fruity spice.
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.
