The slightest minty lift is perceptible on the nose, hovering above black cherry. The palate shows tightly packed, dense, ripe but fresh fruit, as crunchy and juicy as ripe but tart cherries. There is something masculine in the muscular but fine structure. Tautness suggests that this will benefit from mellowing bottle age. Drink from 2017 through 2025.
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.
