A darker brooding notion of smoke and tar precedes cherry on the nose. The palate remains slender but has backbone and grip. There is depth here and potential. Give this some bottle age: with a little time it will put on flesh. For now it is lithe and refreshing. Drink now through 2022.
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.
