A shy touch of pear, green apple and passion fruit hovers above the yeasty nose of this wine. On the palate, lemon zest-like freshness takes over and spotlights the textured, savory and salty yeast that fills it out. That pure lemon tone seemingly lasts forever on the moreish 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.
