Subtle, friendly notes of lemon peel and flesh perfume the nose and continue in their light, sunny vein on the palate. There is a riper aspect as well that references yellow pear and ripe, juicy apples. The purity shines and the acidity is so fresh it is almost textural. A bright, joyous wine.
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.
