A touch of yeasty funk still clings to the pear-fruit nose. The palate brims with ripe juicy pear, helped along by some residual sweetness, and is contained by a pleasantly bitter zestiness. The body is slender but rounded and pervasive. A lively freshness lets it finish dry.
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.
