Subtle smoke and a touch of blueberry is all the nose gives away. The palate reveals more generous fruit reminiscent of ripe and juicy plum. While there is a pleasant, velvety density, the palate is not in the least weighed down by that and sloshes in harmonious joy with palpable but soft, supple and pliable tannins.
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.
