Yeasty autolysis is immediately apparent on the rich creamy nose. This is followed by an equally rounded but dry palate that is dominated by yeasty generosity and finely fizzing bubbles but is actually defined by wonderful freshness. There is a sweet saltiness on the dry finish that is very moreish and lasting. Lovely.
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.
