A slight touch of flinty reduction accents this wine's fresh lemon zest notes, hinting at how very young it is. These qualities also pervade the taut, linear palate but have an earthier, textured edge. The finish recalls pure lemon zest and has a clean, lip-smacking finale. Drink 2019–2030.
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.
