The gloriously intense lift of fresh lemon zest rises immediately. The concentrated palate is so precise, so taut and has so much tension that you can almost feel the citrus flavors exploding in your mouth. This is wonderfully aromatic Riesling that comes with a panoply of both ripe and tart citrus. Gloriously long, ripe and fresh.

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.
