A rather heady nose of red cherry rises from the glass alongside a note of oak. The palate is fluid and slender, with lovely freshness that frames the heightened tones. The tannins are firm and the finish is refreshing. This needs some time to knit together. Drink 2020–2028.
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.
