This wine's rose petal, orange zest and Mandarin aromas rise headily from the glass. The palate frames this aromatic surfeit with a wonderfully creamy texture and an electric streak of freshness that recalls lemon pith. It comes together in a sophisticated package of pleasure that combines fragrant abundance with precision and dryness.
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.
