The nose is reticent and shy but the palate is full of fresh lemon-tinged fruit: pear and mirabelle plum get full fruity rein. This is countered by pithy, pleasantly bitter but subtle grapefruit zest. There is quite a bit of concentration on the midpalate. It's a quiet wine of astonishing harmony and balance. The finish is dry.

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.
