The heady florality of damask rose is joined by powerful earthy forces to acquire a rich autumnal touch of ripe fruit and fragrance. The palate is wonderfully dry, precise and fresh: There is enough acidity here to brighten every last corner of flavor. This is both ethereal and earthy, elegant but firm, fragrant and fresh—from the first whiff to the last vestige of flavor on the tongue.
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.
