A lovely, slightly funky, smokiness on the nose comes hand in hand with baked and bruised apple notes. Crushed notes of yarrow add an herbal frisson. The palate adds a creamy but focused ripeness, well tempered by integrated freshness. It is the texture here that captivates, alongside the complex flavors. This shows that a few years of bottle age are nothing on a good, light-footed Riesling. Enjoy this library release now through 2030.
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.
