Perfumed orange peel rises shyly from the glass. A yeasty hint still swings in the background, before an entire host of ripe citrus notes paints a zesty aromatic picture that draws you in by sheer force of freshness. This treads along the very cusp between tartness and ripeness and provides total thrill. The impression on the palate lasts for minutes.
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.
