Yeast and citrus, chervil and white pepper meet on the nose. The palate blends a streak of pure citrus into all of this and lends sharp aromatic focus to the spicy, almost salty core. This is taut and toned, linear and long without a spare ounce of fat. Exciting and racy.
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.
