Smoky mocha hints precede notes of aromatic black cherry. The smooth and lush ripeness of the fruit only becomes apparent on the rich, almost luscious palate. The body is smooth and rounded, pliable and plush. The tannins are present but soft, it is ripe black cherry fruit that reigns supreme. Lovely freshness on the finish makes for a bright, long aftertaste.
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.
