Mellow and peachy ripeness tempered by fresh grapefruit acidity make this a mineral white with incisive intensity. Right now it's tight and spiky. With time in bottle it will soften into sumptuous fruitiness, but never lose its wonderful edge.
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.
