Earthy, tentative notes of Portabella mushrooms and undergrowth promise a subtle wine and the gentle palate does not disappoint. Medium-bodied but rounded, it has continental freshness. This is not showy or fruit-driven, but a distinct varietal expression of indigenous Rotgipfler that was made for the table.
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.
