Smoke, roast chestnut and plum make for an inviting, rich nose. The palate tones this down with bright acidity and fresher fruit. With more air an alluring overtone of elderberry appears. Aromatics shimmer on the svelte but full-flavored palate and leave an impression of effortless elegance. Lightness is a real virtue here. Drink 2018–2028.
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.
