A subtle hint of sandalwood and rose plays alongside the juicy pear of the palate. There is a rich floral creaminess on the palate that flashes a touch of vanilla and hints of Damask rose. A pleasantly bitter phenolic edge gives direction to the dynamic energy of fruit that trembles at the core of this wine. Hints of rose, lemon oil and peach linger long after the last sip. This is concentrated, off dry and energetic. Drink 2017–2027.
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.
