Vanilla pervades the luscious palate of plum and berry. Everything here is at full volume: opulent fruit and ripe, structured tannin, alcoholic heat and oaky spice. This is unashamedly big and bold and will need a rare T-bone steak to tame it.
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.
