It's that arresting mix of flintiness and savory yeast that gets you first. There are hints of pine and ivy, all bedded in the ripeness of juicy yellow pear and mirabelle plum. Whiffs of white pepper provide extra excitement and draw you in. This is clean and complex, rich and streamlined. Dive in.
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.
