Restrained notes of honeyed richness rise from the glass. The ripe peach scent has floral overtones. The palate has a fluid, almost oily feel but is dry. A wonderfully fine phenolic edge helps to provide structure to this evolving Gewurztraminer, as do aromatic notes of orange zest. The harmonious balance of body and weight, of concentration and elegance on this dry wine are exemplary. The finish is long and elegant.
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.
