Soft smoke on the nose leads onto a soft but full-flavored palate that harmoniously unites very fresh acidity with lemony overtones, rounded red apple flavors and a smoky, nutty but subtle oakiness. Together they create great, flowing unity . This is a delicious medium-weight food wine now but it does have the stuffing to develop for the coming three to five years, if not longer.
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.
