A touch of flint plays onto an earthy nose, the palate adds fleshy peach and lots of lemon and white pepper. There is immense concentration at the core and more reserves of pepper and spice that will slowly come to the fore. This should stay in the cellar for a year or two to round out but will shine with savoriness.
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.
