Only faint glimpses of ripe red plum with aromatic spice reminiscent of clove and cinnamon reveal themselves. With more air, the characteristic pepper appears, as does dark, ripe fruit. The palate is concentrated and structured but remains fresh and slender. This is elegant wine for an elegant occasion.
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.
