The gentlest hints of honeysuckle and orange blossom flit about the nose. They have a fleeting teasing quality that makes you want to sip. The palate is rich, textured and almost oily, but saved by freshness and structure. Have this while the aromas are at their charming peak.
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.
