The mix of fresh crisp apple and shortbread notes on the nose is a delight. The same interplay of fresh, ripe and crisp apple fruit and the more developed richer notes of autolysis continue on the light and dry palate, supported by lively fine fizzing mousse. Inherent freshness brightens the entire palate while the long shortbread-tinged aftertaste makes for a very elegant finish. Lovely.

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.
