That ethereal herbal lift of fine Riesling is apparent with the very first whiff. These wonderfully herb-scented notions continue on the exemplary dry palate: Imagine a lick of scented, dried chamomile embracing notions of dried and fresh apple and citrus peel. A wonderfully harmonious synthesis of fresh and evolved flavors. If you need convincing of the mature charm of Riesling this is the wine to convince you: Elegant, understated and yet intense. The finish is dry, sustained and utterly moreish. Lovely and maturing now, but with further potential. Drink 2017–2030.

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.
