The vanilla and wood scent of new oak is evident on the nose. On the palate this is more integrated, the fine wood notes intertwining with the ripe cherry fruit. The tannin structure is fine and firm, supported by vivid freshness. This is lovely now but will mellow over the coming years. Drink 2018–2025.

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.
