Tender, teasing perfumes of ivy leaves and citrus with riper notions of pear, yeast and grapefruit peel make for a complete, spicy palate. The phenolic midpalate has a counterpoint in the zesty acidity. Good now, but will develop.
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.
