The nose promises depth of fruit: very ripe red apple, rich and juicy Bosc pear and the zest of ripe oranges. The palate has an earthy edge that grounds the fruit and a seam of very bright, pungent freshness. All the elements are there and this will come into its own with a little more bottle age. Drink 2018–2026.
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.
