A touch of flint flashes up briefly before fruity notes of ripe juicy apricot and peach take over. On the palate they are joined by a flash of lemon freshness that brightens and heightens the slender but concentrated palate. Lemon and peach, tangerine and mirabelle fill mouth and mind while the freshness blows away any sensory cobwebs. This is deeply satisfying, lovely now but sure to improve. Drink now through 2030.
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.
