Dark, aromatic cherry has a lovely floral softness about it on the nose. The palate comes in with an enlivening, dark-fruited freshness but also something gentle and smooth. The poised balance of blueberry fruit, cashmere tannins and sinuousness elevates this to total elegance. Blueberries and cinnamon own the gently grippy, long finish. Drink until 2030.
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.
