The bright, tart flesh of early-season apples tingles enticingly on the nose. The palate follows with tart sweetness, mimicking the sweet but refreshing crunch of a ripe but tart apple. The body is delicate, with a balance that teeters between sweet and tart. Totally refreshing, it finishes with lasting echoes of apple.
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.
