Zesty notes of tangerine are met with earthier hints of russet pear peel on the open appetizing nose. The palate shines with even brighter citrus appeal—think tangerine and tart blood orange with a wonderfully vivid lemon streak. This is linear and concentrated, utterly refreshing and lively. The finish is dry, long and beautifully invigorating. Drink 2017–2030.
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.
