Ripe notions of Mirabelle and Reine Claude plums exude their fresh, fruity flavors. On the palate they gain focus with lemon and lime zest. A wonderfully light-footed, balanced and zippy Riesling with a spicy edge of conifer and citrus foliage. The aftertaste is astonishingly lasting. A beauty.
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.
