Notes of yeast and fresh pear hint that this is for keeping. Fruit is still held tightly curled at the core, waiting to blossom, while hints of peppery, herbal, yeasty spice already hold sway. This is concentrated but remains elegantly slender and beautifully toned. Poise and structure are the hallmarks.
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.
