A very closed nose on the palate gives way to zesty citrus notes on a very refreshing, clean and slender palate. With some probing, a little textural spice shows and leads to a fuller notion of lemon and grapefruit zest. The finish is fresh and clean and suggests the merest hint of 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.
