Brooding black cherries, fresh plums and blueberries are dusted with cinnamon spice on this alluring nose. There almost is an overtone of dried orange peel that gives aromatic lift. The palate is fleshy and dense but has a vein of freshness at the core. Fruit and tannins create a smudged, rich body of crushed, fresh fruit with subtle grip. This is lusciously ripe now but will develop beautifully.
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.
