Gentle perfume of citrus with just a hint of yeast sets the scene. The palate is concentrated, a lot more yeasty and very citric. There is ample depth and a core of white pepper and fruit that yet has to open up properly. This is one for the long run—but with ample refreshment and elegant poise. The finish just lasts and lasts.
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.
