Sumptuous notes of ripe, red cherry almost veer into ripe plum territory and have a spicy, mellow hint of vanilla and cinnamon. The palate replays these flavors, complete with finely woven tannins that seem to boost the aromatic cinnamon notes. A rich wine but without superfluous fat. Lovely, velvety and sensuous in a modern, international style.
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.
