The nose is very shy but gives the slightest promise of ripe, red fruit. Red cherry appears in full splendor on the palate, edged by racy, exciting freshness and superfine but crunchy tannins. The body remains slender but there is a sensuous, warm core of ripe fruit. Lovely now but will develop over the coming five years. Drink 2018–2025.
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.
