An almost creamy wave of pear fruit hits the nose. The palate is equally soft and full fruited, boosted by residual sweetness that makes the fruit fluid and rounded. This is countered by ample zesty freshness that has a pithy slightly bitter edge. The finish is just off 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.
