A restrained nose gives little away but the palate reveals very taut, shy citrus notes and lively fizzing mousse. Everything about this shows restraint but also balance and ample pure freshness. Austere perhaps, but also convincing. The finish is full of lemon dryness.
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.
