Delicately floral with subtle notes of ripe pear and fresh lemon, this charmer features a soft but defined palate. The creamy, pliable texture is rather seductive and far too easy to drink, so much so that one might forget what a well-made and ageworthy wine this is. The smoky glints of oak are most appealing.
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.
