Restrained notes of woodsmoke play around hints of ripe yellow pear. The palate boasts a backbone of acidity plus that famous varietal phenolic grip. Made for the long run, the wine will turn out rich and layered. Drink from 2016.
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.
