Earth, yeast, ripe red apples and some oaky spice defy expectations. A little bit funky but endlessly intriguing, this wine will complement food, especially if there are mushrooms and bitter leaves. The soft and concentrated palate is rich but does not lack in refreshment. A spike of spearmint keeps you coming back.
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.
