There is a touch of nuttiness on the nose before lemon notes kick in. There is lots of rounded spice, including hints of nutmeg and mace, that dance with the subtle lemony freshness on the light-bodied palate. The flavors are intriguing and very fresh, with a juicy, enlivening and still spicy finish.
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.
