Creamy notes of tart red currant and crisp red apple perfume the nose. The palate adds to that a gentle, softening creaminess which mellows but does not seek to tame the exuberant freshness. This is lively and joyful, in a way that is mellow and brisk and the same time. The elegant mousse is enriching, the finish is of crisp red apple.

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.
