Pervasive notes of red apple and red pear that are both intense and restrained rise from the glass. They persist freshly and beautifully on a fluid, rounded body that is given much direction and shape by taut, bright acidity. There is a beautiful balance and great concentration with a warm, alcoholic finish.
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.
