A lovely, yeasty savor clings to more characteristic pear notes on the nose of this wine. The palate repeats this interplay, with flashes of watercress-like green herb and fresh pear skin flavors. It's refreshing, savory and dry, with a light and spritzy body.
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.
