Notes of herb and stone color the subdued fruit of the nose on this wine. The medium-sweet palate reveals a more honeyed nature, hemmed in by a pithy, almost earthy bitterness of citrus peel, giving both balance and texture. The long finish is concentrated.
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.
