A touch of reduction clouds juicy, ripe cherry notes on the nose but they appear edged by freshness on the light, taut palate. There is a pleasant grip of fine tannin and a slight crunch. A fresh-faced but very authentic and pure wine.
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.
