Wonderfully reductive notes of gunflint blend with aromatic notes of baked apple and citrus zestiness on the nose. The palate reprises these notes and adds a vivid, textured earthiness. At its core is a mouthwatering saltiness edged with pleasantly bitter pith and dusty sprays of white pepper. What concentration, what allure, what freshness, even with five years of maturity.
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.
