Beeswax and ripe pear appear with a subtle lift on the nose. There are evolved notes of earth and polished wood that dance above the ever-present softly sweet pear fruit. This is a slender wine rounded out with fruit that echoes softly. The finish is dry.
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.
