The faintest touch of mocha and vanilla play enticingly on the dark-cherry nose. The palate is full of ripe red cherry, has a glossy, luscious sheen of oak, but handles it very well. A more international style but still with all the hallmark freshness and brightness of Alsace. Drink 2018–2025.
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.
