Beautifully aromatic notions of citrus peel and blossom reach the nose. The creamy fine bubbles that follow accentuate those hints of blossom even more on the slender, fresh, bright and utterly invigorating palate. This is light, floral, and unusual, but totally charming. The finish is dry and whistle clean with another hit of that pure expressive citrus florality.

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.
