A bright spike of lemon precedes the mossy, green freshness and elderflower notes on the nose of this wine. The palate remains slender but has a creamy, bright edge and a more substantial, textured core. Its central well of passion fruit flavor has yet to unfold. Wait for this; it will be lovely. Drink 2020–2028.
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.
