Soft and inviting ripeness of yellow plums leads to a spicy, peppery and wonderfully focused citrus center. This is a wine you want to savor, easing out every last notion of the layered spice. While it is fresh now, it can certainly keep and will shine especially when paired with hearty, Austrian-style food—Wiener Schnitzel, anyone?

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.
