Honeysuckle and lychee, peach and damask rose: These are the tell-tale aromas of Traminer. Here they acquire the extra precision and drive of the Wachau: fragrant grapefruit peel counters the decadent richness of the flavor and gives verve and life to all the aromatics. The finish is dry, satisfying and long. This will age well. Drink now through 2030.
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.
