Creamy notes show subtle smoke and hazelnut notions. The flavor profile is equally subtle but has an underlying, pervasive lemony freshness that brightens the entire palate. This is a restrained, friendly, approachable but classy Chardonnay—and a very good choice for dishes that also have a spike of lemon flavor.
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.
