The fragrant lift of conifer and citrus, of cypress and mandarin leaves, will make Riesling lovers swoon. The palate follows with plump yet precise stone fruit including apricot and peach. Sunshine seems to dominate the palate. This is full-frontal charm in a glass: decadently fruited but utterly balanced and sharp. Simply lovely and utterly moreish. Drink soon for top aromatics.
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.
