Citrus foliage and zest hover aromatically on the nose before being subsumed into a richer, generous but always brisk palate. This wine offers both bold, crisp, invigorating green apple sharpness and a gentler notion of lemon shortbread. It's bright and pure, with a creamy, exuberant sparkle that conveys lemony freshness. That pure, lemony, superclean finish resonates and makes you want to sip more. This would be a mouth-watering apéritif.
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.
