Some flinty reduction still hovers over the glass, underneath, riper, appetizing fruit like peach and yellow plum shimmers. There is a fresh, textured phenolic edge and brightening acidity which pulls everything in to a clear, taut focus. This is full of flavor and depth.
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.
