Incredibly pure notes of ripe Mandarin peel and juicy tangerine encapsulate the nose of this wine. A full blaze of ripe citrus freshness is then unleashed on concentrated but taut palate. Ripe tangerine, Mandarin and Meyer lemon flavors are expressed with aromatic and heady intensity, performing a high-wire act with bright, stony acidity that keeps it from feeling fleshy or fat. Wow. Lovely now, sure to evolve. Drink 2018–2035.
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.
