Apple peel and orange rind are hinted at on the restrained nose, with the same aromatic subtlety on the poised palate. The wine holds a lovely, fresh balance between varietal richness and the freshness of the vintage, with notes of honey and baked apple. It's a friendly, fruit-focused and balanced wine with a lovely, lingering 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.
