A very subdued nose leads onto a slender palate that is full of friendly, inviting, juicy but mild pear fruit—both green and yellow. There is a lovely tart edge of grapefruit that lets the wine finish dry, despite the full-fruited slenderness of the palate.
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.
