The notes and wonderful texture of fresh, green pear peel mixes on nose and palate with some riper aspects of yellow stone fruit. The palate is rounded and concentrated, almost like a capsule of ripeness that bounces roundly on the palate. This is edged by freshness and that peppery, herbal tang that makes Grüner such a food-friendly chameleon.
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.
