A subdued nose of ripe, scented yellow Reine Claude and mirabelle plums suggests a sun-kissed wine. The palate reinforces this stone-fruited richness with elements of apricot and peach compote. This is off-dry but delicately balanced, rich but not opulent. Soft and gentle harmoniousness pervades from start to long finish.
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.
