Lovely and generous notes of juicy ripe pear are most inviting on the nose. The concentrated punchy palate cuts in with welcome lemon zestiness and that wonderful Grüner spiciness of freshly milled white pepper. The lovely texture of the midpalate, combined with that lemony verve, is totally disarming.
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.
