Black cherry and ripe blackberry would sumptuously lull you in if it weren't for that tender frame of acidity and soft, supple tannins, keeping everything in check and making this a versatile food wine. This has immense charm and pure, long, peppery fruit.
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.
