Notes of linden tea and candied lemon hit the nose. The palate comes in with gentle, late-harvest sweetness, balanced by delicate, fresh acidity. This unusual style shows off Demerara sugar and dried-apple notes. It's not sweet enough to be a dessert wine but will shine either with spicy Asian dishes or with washed-rind cheese.
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.
