Appetizing, flinty notes of woodsmoke mingle with green pear and unite into wonderful concentration on the linear palate. A rounded but toned wine, with some muscle and an almost phenolic grip, this calls out for food and will be a worthy accompaniment for white meats. Wonderful apple-dominated and prolonged finish.
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.
