The nose is a heady mix of very ripe and aromatic dried pear. The palate adds yeasty roundness to this fulsome fruit, adding an extra dimension and some pleasant midpalate texture with an almost salty tang. There is concentrated freshness, which holds this together and gives it direction. The finish is warm and long.
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.
