Yeast and thyme, arugula and watercress encounter fresh pear on the nose. The palate has a savory saltiness that is hard to resist, but the body remains slender and feels fizzy and almost sherbet-like. All in all, this is a very intriguing little packet of Grüner—neat but oh so spicy.
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.
