Plump fruit, ripe plum, cinnamon and blueberry appear on the nose. These notions unite on a dense, but rather fresh body where the grip of tannin is only revealed on the finish. It is countered by ample fruit and freshness that give a feeling of juicy, smooth roundness. A balanced and harmonious red that stays on the refreshing side.
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.
