A wonderfully subtle touch of chamomile and yarrow appears first. This is followed by tart apple and citrus notes that also play vividly on the palate. The body is dry and slender, translucent and herbal. There is wonderful energy and drive despite the lightness. The depth of flavor, with that herbal tang, remains beguiling from the start to the long, long finish.
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.
