Notes of Turkish delight and peach immediately signal opulence. The palate follows up with distinct sweetness that underlines the rich rose and peach flavors even more. There is an edge of freshness, but only just. Yet the palate is intense and pervaded by peach. Whether this is about intensity or sweetness will depend entirely on the food it is paired with.
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.
