This is a slender, white pepper-spiced, rather light-bodied Blaufränkisch with lots of verve and freshness. There are notes of tar and earth in the background and while the tannins are moderate, they have a palpable structure.
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.
