A little smoke, a little pear peel, some aloe vera... Nothing is overdone and all falls into place. On the palate a hint of rich, yeasty nuttiness jostles with ripe fruit, but all is under tight restraint. This wine will take time to show its glorious colors. Drink as of 2016.
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.
