Hints of ripe apricot and ethereal notes of crushed boxwood add interest to the more usual aromatic spectrum of green pear and white pepper. A lovely phenolic grip provides extra dimension and calls for food. Rounded, intriguing but still very refreshing.
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.
