The restrained nose just gives hints of ripe russet pear which appears with a friendly off-dry presence on the palate. The generosity of the fruit is offset with phenolic, pithy but pleasant bitterness that segues into zesty citrus. The finish is dry and clean.
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.
