A fruity lift of pear and lemon rises first, but there is texture and plump, ripe fruit at the core. There is even more zest—but this wine needs air to breathe and takes a while to come out of its shell. A graceful, slender structure is framed by citrus peel. This is linear and echoes long with lemon zest and green pear.
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.
