The dense blackcurrant fruit, both fresh and cooked, that dominates the nose belies the more elegant, pliable palate. There is richness of dark berries and a hint of tar and smoke, but the body remains fresh and supple on this medium-weight Zweigelt.
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.
