All the mellow ripeness of late summer greets the nose. Ripe, zesty red-cheeked and yellow apples combine with stone fruit and lemony freshness into a rounded, supremely balanced and concentrated wine made from rare, indigenous Roter Veltliner. Yeasty texture rounds out the freshness. Birgit Eichinger once again shows her talent for expressive white winemaking.
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.
