The slightest touch of flinty reduction clings to the nose. Underneath, the crisp, slender palate is dominated by appetizing notes of ripe lemon. A tiny bit of spritz makes the slender body seem almost weightless, but all that lovely lemon fruit fills mouth and nose. The finish is featherlight and refreshing.
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.
