A restrained nose has hints of fresh pear and lovely wet earth. The pear and earth roundness also continues on the palate where it is met with bright lemony freshness. This results in a balanced, appetizing body. The finish is dry and fresh with a slightly bitter tang.
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.
