Hints of red and black cherry are joined by darker notions of black berries. The palate seems tinged with black elderberry and iron oxide with a central vein of acidity. There is structure, the slightest tannin grip plus lots of elegance and poise. Nonetheless, this will be truer to itself by 2017–2018. Full of promise.

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.
