Strikingly golden in color this tightly holds very ripe yellow pear fruit and dark honey. With time in glass, fresh and ripe pineapple tantalizes. The palate is concentrated and has a pleasantly bitter phenolic edge, stony definition and a core of freshness. The undeniably ripe fruit is still tightly corseted and will need cellaring to express itself. Drinks as of 2018.
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.
