Many things happen here at once: there are rose petals, clear blossom honey, ripe yellow pears, bitter orange, roasted hazelnuts and green tea—unlikely companions that unite surprisingly well in this complex, nutty and layered wine with pleasing concentration and length.The wonderful seam of acidity lifts everything onto a different plane.
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.
