Beautifully ripe and aromatic notions of juicy pear and red apples play on the nose. The palate is more advanced and full of lanolin and chalk notes with a rich texture but absolutely dry. This has a rich but taut, almost balm-like body with concentration. The backbone of lemony freshness pull a tight focus. Ready now, but will develop and drink well until 2020.
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.
