Earthy overtones hover above ripe apple fruit. The palate reveals baked notes of Bramely apple and lemon juice. There is freshness and concentration and slight edges of lanolin and chalk begin to appear, signalling that there is life ahead. Wonderfully dry with a clean, citrus-scented finish. Drink 2016–2020.
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.
