Redcurrant and cranberry vie for attention, while a slightly wilder notion of rosehip creates a lifted aroma with an edge of aromatic tisane, hinting at some evolution. The palate confirms this with rich oatmeal and biscuit, a touch of honey and the alluring brightness of both fresh and candied lemon peel. This wine is slender but profound, with just the right amount of evolution. It's serious enough to take on subtle foods. The finish is rich but never lets go of its briskness.
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.
