A very slight notion of hazelnut hovers on the fresh nose. The palate comes with wonderful citric intensity of ripe lemon and a dash of lime. That same smoky hint stays on the palate throughout, adding an extra dimension. The finish is pleasantly long and refreshing.
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.
