Beautifully pure cherry notes are subdued on the nose and fight against the privations of the 2014 vintage. There is lip-smacking freshness and admirable concentration on the textured palate with its velvety folds. The finish is clean and dry. Drink now through 2019.
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.
