An earthy glint precedes the lemony caramel notes that dominate the nose. Honey-drizzled apricots reveal themselves with a second sniff and come on full tilt on the luscious palate. A lovely lemon sharpness along with a delicious streak of bitterness counters the sweetness. Wave upon wave of apricot flavor settles on the tongue, pulsating like an epicenter of pleasure. Drink until 2040, at least.
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.
