The nose is an intricate blend of rose petal, sandalwood and the ripe red-speckled skin of plump mirabelle plums. The palate echoes this perfectly, with an off-dry, cushioned and plump feel that just bathes all the senses in ripe fruit. The warm finish again emphasizes the ripe, plump 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.
