Heady peach is joined by a tart notion of citrus foliage. This exquisite aromatic quality of the nose carries throughout the taut but generous body. Despite dryness, luscious peach and red-cheeked mirabelle plums are evoked in a very pure honest fashion. This is the bounty of 2015 displayed with a very light touch, with finesse and elegance. Drink now through 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.
