A closed nose leads straight to a vanilla-tinged palate of strawberry enveloped by mellow, soft notes of oak. This is rounded and pliable, cushioned with echoes of baking spice and comfort. The palate is soft and silky. Everything about this wine is soothing and mellow.
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.
