Dusky and brooding notes of black cherry tinged with tar and iron oxide paint a moody but sumptuous picture of darkly aromatic fruit on a toned but muscular palate. This is one of those intriguing wines on which ample care has been lavished, yet nothing denies an untamed almost savage wilderness at the core. Elegant nonetheless.
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.
