Not only ripe apple but juicy yellow plum notes appear on the nose. That fruity appeal carries on right across the palate where it is supported by a lemony wave of frothy enlivening fizz. A tinge of autolysis adds seriousness and depth. This might benefit from a little further bottle age. The finish is dry and classy. Drink 2017–2019.
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.
