The nose of this translucent red is very shy. The palate is exquisitely light with an aromatic touch of conifer on fresh tart red currants. The palate is very dry and light. Try chilling this as you would a rosé. While there is not a lot of body, there is lots of charm. Drink soon.
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.
