Green pears announce themselves immediately, followed by riper pear flavors. This makes for a rich but still toned palate, where white pepper and leafy spice also come into play. Muscular but trim, this wine has the concentration to last. Drink until 2020.
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.
