Soft whispers of orange peel, earth and wax hinted at on the nose come into their own on the rounded palate, where a phenolic dimension lends structure. Plush and soft, this will be a perfect partner for something rich and spicy, or for ripe, soft-rind cheeses.
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.
