The smell of wet earth is mixed with the scent of ripe peach. The palate is rounded with peachy sweetness which is countered by a pleasant, slightly bitter phenolic texture that accentuates the rich fruit even more. Showing beautiful maturity, this is expressive and ready to drink. The flavors are concentrated, pure and lasting, finishing off dry and lingering long.
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.
