The aromatic richness of ripe pears rises from the glass. The same rich fruit is joined by a lively streak of lemon freshness on the palate where it is met with a judicious dollop of residual sweetness. This wine plays off generous, juicy ripeness with tingling, tart freshness and creates a delicious balancing act. The finish is zesty and just off dry and wonderfully moreish.

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.
