Marmalade, toffee, vanilla and tonka bean swirl on the nose. Rich and smooth, rounded and mellow, yet with an incredibly bright, aromatic core of fine citrus. Think dried and candied orange peel and candied blood orange. What a magical balance the citrus freshness strikes with the cushioning, gentle vanilla. Textural bliss and aromatic fireworks. Drink until 2040, at least.
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.
