Both juicy Mirabelle plum and lemon provide a counterbalance to oaky creaminess on the nose. The palate brims with juicy, ripe fruit and citrus freshness, while creaminess and gentle vanilla act as balm. Oak flavors will integrate more over time. Drink 2020–2030.
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.
