The nose is reticent but reveals glimpses of passion fruit and peach. These are intensified by honeyed richness on the concentrated palate. Flavors are luscious and round but tangy notes of grapefruit zest give tension and ease to this richness. The finish is all about freshness despite being medium sweet. The peach lasts and lasts.
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.
