Notes of red and black cherries have a touch of tar and earth on the nose. On the palate the fruit is fresh and crisp, ripe but still wonderfully crunchy, just like a fine web of tannins that crunch like starched tulle. There is ample freshness, good concentration and a finely struck balance. Highly appetizing, neither light nor heavy, just right.
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.
