Earthiness mingles with very ripe notions of stone fruit and mirabelle plum compote. There are hints of caramel and a pervading sense of lemon freshness that balances the off-dry palate. The fruit flavors are rich, full-on and linger on the 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.
