A hint of smoke clings to the fresh pear notes on the nose. On the palate they are joined by bright lemon on a concentrated body that is dry but rich in its linear, straight-laced fashion. This austere but powerful wine promises to be even better with bottle age. Drink 2022–2030.
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.
