A very restrained nose hints at citrus zest which comes into full, exciting force on the concentrated, taut and slender palate. This is so fine, so clean, that it suggests a cool, Alpine stream. Zesty freshness conquers all—just a few peppery, yeasty notes are glimpsed at the edges. A racy memento of the 2014 vintage.
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.
