Iron oxide, elderberry, oak and red currant combine intriguingly with glints of smoke that arise. The palate is slender and light, with the sonorous, grounding earthiness so typical for the variety. Lively acidity illuminates the red currant fruit while gossamer tannins provide undeniable but almost weightless structure. Ready to drink.
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.
