A hint of ripe peach joins the rose and honeysuckle notes on the nose. The palate seems to have a smidgeon of sweetness, boosting the rose and peach notes. There also is an earthy, pithy textural grip to the rich palate. This is concentrated fresh but intense with an off-dry finish.
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.
