Slight notes of iron oxide inform the dense and richly textured red cherry fruit of this sumptuous, velvety red. Direction and sleekness are courtesy of wonderfully ripe but vibrant acidity. This is delicious now with its wonderful red fruit, but will age beautifully. Classy, vibrant and generous.
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.
