A subdued nose gives glints of earthy smoke and citrus zest. It is on the palate that soaring notes of ripe Amalfi lemon tangerines appear. This is ripeness expressed within a taut firm frame of acidic bright structure. The palate is concentrated and linear, the finish is dry and lasting. The citrus aromas gain something of apple towards the finish. Wonderfully fresh. Lovely now but sure to develop. Drink 2017–2035.
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.
