At first, the abundant apple notes seem crisp and green. On the palate they attain the mellowness of ripe Golden Delicious apples and the aroma of yellow plums. There is a pleasant autolytic background of sponge-cake and shortbread, balanced by lovely aromatic lemon freshness and fine mousse. The finish is absolutely dry and very pure.

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.
