This wine's nose is still slightly reduced. Its palate shows ripe, almost luscious black cherry fruit, but it's held in check by sufficient freshness to feel bright, juicy and joyful. Glimpses of cinnamon and pepper liven things up.
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.
