The lively spice notes on the nose of this zippy, easy and fresh Grüner fully do justice to the variety's nickname 'Pfefferl', meaning little peppery one. The palate is light and brimming with citrus-scented crispness. Drink soon—preferably on a languorous hot afternoon.
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.
