An unusual flavor combination of hazelnut and passion fruit marks the nose of this wine. On the palate, these two poles—one of tart freshness, the other of textured richness—intertwine even more. This simply needs time to come into its full glory: an oak-aged Sauvignon Blanc of immense freshness, concentration and lees-driven richness. Drink 2020–2030.
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.
