Pleasantly smoky overtones herald a sophisticated, subtle wine whose thrilling acidity is beautifully tempered by soft creaminess, here and there are notions of hazelnut, and of lime zest. Beautiful now but with mileage. Drink until 2018.
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.
