This starts with cherry, iron oxide and faint notes of something akin to raw meat. Aromatic intrigue continues on the palate where fleshy cherry takes over. The fruit is dynamic and energetic, swishing amid a light but definite tannin structure. This will benefit from more time in bottle. Drink as of 2016.
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.
