This wine's fresh, juicy yellow pear-inflected nose has a touch of ripe cantaloupe and an herbal hint of conifer. The palate continues with intriguing notes of fir honey but gives the starring role to ripe pear and fresh apple notes. It's lithe and fresh, always with that heady hint of honey.
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.
