The nose is almost closed but the palate paints a subtle picture of toned-down intensity. A savory core is made mellow with lees and a slight oak influence that becomes more apparent on the finish. Fruit—pear and yellow plum—plays second fiddle to the yeasty midpalate.
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.
