This wine's nose is shy, allowing just subtle hints of watercress and lemon zest to escape. The palate reveals the full zesty force of lemon: tart but ripe freshness, a lip-smacking pithy, freshness and a concentrated yet streamlined body. Drink now for utter refreshment or wait for it to mellow. The finish is dry and lasting. Drink 2018–2030.
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.
