This takes a little time to emerge from its shell. Even then the wine does not want to give too much of its rich aromas away, but it offers hints of elderberry and spice. The palate is svelte but shows fleshy fruit haunted by white pepper. There is tone and verve, but this will take time to come into its own. Drink 2017–2020.
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.
