Green pear peel, some yeasty spice and a bit of lemon zest make for an invigorating nose. The palate comes with apt concentration and provides proper midpalate interest with zest and herbal notes. Lovely grippiness calls for food, but this slips down easily enough by itself.
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.
