Fresh, Bing cherries with a twist of white pepper on nose and palate create a fruit-driven, medium-bodied red that could even be chilled a little in summer. There is a subtle tannic structure on its medium body, an echo of oak, but also lots of verve and freshness. It's perfect for elegant but informal drinking.
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.
