Fresh, bright hints of Golden Delicious apples meet zesty lemon notes and a wet pebble stoniness on the nose of this wine. With air, the fruit grows more insistent. The palate is beautifully svelte and lets the apple and ripe pear fruit shine. Lemony freshness lends precision. There is concentration and just a little heat on the dry 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.
