Still a little closed, this does not yet want to give too much away of its ripe, almost sumptuous flavors. The palate however, signals that all is there: concentration, balance and rich fruit cut through with ample freshness. Yeasty savoriness and white pepper play on the midpalate. This will open up. Drink as of 2017.
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.
