At first there is the juiciness of freshly cut green pear, then there is an explosion of white pepper bedded in yeasty softness. Framed by citrus and more green pear fruit, the pepper just continues to delight on the concentrated core. Lovely, full-flavored finish.
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.
