While the nose is shy, the palate displays a grapefruit-spiced edged along with the ripeness of juicy stone fruit: mirabelles and yellow pears are conjured up. While the fruit is ripe the wine has something weightless, transparent and fresh. This goes down far too easily and needs to be savored. The finish is delicate but full flavored.
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.
