More broodingly dark cherry is hardly possible. While the fruit is sumptuous, the palate remains toned and fresh. Because of the clean-cut fruit, one almost forgets to notice the subtle minerality plus a perceptible but gracious tannin structure with no heaviness. Just authentic fruit and wonderful poise.
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.
