Ripe lemon with a touch of licorice haunts the nose, while the palate gives way to the full breadth of that tart but teasing lemon flavor. This is very refreshing and has a dryish, lip-smacking finish. The lingering citrus makes this a top apéritif for a lively party.
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.
