Bruised apple peel, ripe Golden Delicious apples and overtones of aromatic, dark fir honey are an unusual proposition, but a successful and intriguing one here. The palate is full and supple and highlighted by fresh apple acidity while the edges are framed by pleasant phenolic grip. This is a wine for grown-ups.

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.
