This is generously ripe and teasingly tart at the same time and therefore utterly moreish. This wonderful combination of freshness and ripeness runs like a seam through this vintage, but is elegantly expressed here with sprays of white pepper here and there.
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.
