An almost tropical touch of passion fruit hovers above the nose as if to draw you in. Once imbibed, this reveals a concentrated but nonetheless light-footed charm that captures all the spiciness of a ripe, yellow grapefruit—pith, peel and pulp. This is appetizing with immense drive and energy. At the core, however, there is a calm and confident purity. This is alive.
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.
