This wine resonates earth, apple, chalk and oatmeal with purity and poise, yet is less about fruit and more about structure and elegance. The balance here is astounding: autolysis subsumes acidity and turns it into a luminous, resonant, cool glow. Restrained elegance and subtle balance are central themes—the finish is long, subtle and creamy.
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.
