Initially tight and closed, a few minutes in the glass reveal ballet-like elegance, slender but defined muscle and tightly-packed, dark cherry fruit, along with the aromatic allure of elderberries. This is sleek and spicy and totally worth the wait with its seductive, ethereal aromas. Drink from 2015.
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.
