Fruit and wood combine for a seductive intro: the sonorous, soothing notes of vanilla unite ripe, aromatic blueberry fruit, floral overtones and rounded spice. This is smooth and pliant with an all-velvet core on a fullish body. Blueberry echoes long after the last sip.
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.
