All the characteristics of Blaufränkisch emerge: dark berry fruit, white pepper, freshness and a structured but svelte figure. This is eminently drinkable with its wonderful backbone of acidity, its uncomplicated blueberry fruit and very appealing rusticity that makes you want to sip.
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.
