Gorgeously lifted notes of mint and crushed citrus foliage suggest immense purity with the very first whiff. The palate has the same lifted quality but is fleet of foot and more rounded than you would expect. It remains slender but charms with exquisitely pure lemon freshness and an essence of tart apple. Both intriguing and delicious, this drinks well now but will evolve. Drink 2016–2024.
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.
