Notions of citrus peel and foliage, of ripe, red-cheeked little yellow mirabelle plums mix exoticism with the homely. Treading on light feet, almost on a tightrope, this is top-laden with fruit, yet focused and taut. A real flirt of a wine, but with serious intent.
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.
