A fleshy hint of ripe cherry creates an inviting nose. The palate is similarly fruity but also firm with fine tannins. There is something rustic, rugged and earthy about this, but in a very engaging way. Slightly rustic but quite alluring. Drink 2018–2025.
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.
