A lovely lift of lemon oil on the nose gives a seductive headiness to the wine. The palate then convinces with generous orange flesh and peel, with tangerine spice and juicy fulsomeness, but never without citric zesty tension. This has drive, freshness and a lively energy. You simply want to drown in this. Lovely now, but built to last. Drink now through 2040.
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.
