A lifted nose combines the purity of fresh mandarin peel with the mellowness of baked apple. This shows how a few years' bottle age can turn dry, fresh Riesling: into a perfumed marvel. The palate is sprightly, still informed by fresh lemon zest. Lovely now it will continue developing. Drink now through 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.
