Rounded, creamy notes of ripe and mellow apple stream from the glass. The palate is equally mellow and creamy, with an inherent bright freshness and a wonderfully creamy midpalate. Notions of freshly baked shortbread pastry join the apple notes and make for a very balanced, textured and rounded palate, vivid with apple freshness. This is lovely now, but sure to evolve in bottle. The finish is dry and creamy. Drink now through 2025.
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.
