A hint of flinty reduction on the nose of this wine segues into a lovely, taut, lemony palate that has some of that flint but also stone, zest and texture. While light and slender, it fills the mouth and mind in a most elegant, understated fashion. Chardonnay lovers take note: Styria is a great contender for classy bottles. Look for the variety under its pseudonym, Morillon. Drink now–2028.
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.
