Candied mandarin peel and apricot join the rose-petal flavors that meet on an unctuous, rich palate. Residual sweetness gives this considerable heft but the overall balance is there, with a soft-focus finish that carries both fruit and spice.
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.
