A touch of honeysuckle meets ripe, juicy pear on the nose. The palate adds a touch of residual sweetness to boost the fruit flavors, as well as a pithy, slightly bitter texture to provide a frame. Everything is shot through with bright, lively lemon freshness, which is exactly what makes the wine so moreish in its medium-sweet way.
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.
