Flinty smoke and a faint streak of grapefruit peel constitute the scant aromatics of this tightly closed wine. Concentration, streamlined acidic structure and extended length assure quality but bid us to be patient. It will also last the distance, probably with more candied angelica and citrus peel. Enjoy as of 2017.
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.
