Some smoky notes temper the exotic but subdued aromas of both stone and tropical fruit. The palate is slender and has a pleasing varietal edge of nettle and grass. Some oak lends a creamy palate structure that softens the bright freshness. A light but balanced wine.
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.
