A whiff of salted caramel endows the nose with an appetizing idea of toffee apple. The frothy palate is lively and shows off ripe, fruity apple notes of Red Delicous and shortcrust pastry. Crispness is countered by richer, playful fruit that anchors notes of biscuit and yeast. The finish is sustained.
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.
