Luscious stone fruit streams into the nose, while the palate reins this richness in with straight-laced citrus. Lime and grapefruit zest make for a linear, refreshing and streamlined Federspiel with the typical freshness of the 2014 vintage. This will age beautifully even through it already provides great enjoyment for lovers of brisk, fresh, dry Rieslings.
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.
