A wonderfully aromatic hit of citrus foliage, Seville orange zest and blood orange assails the nose. The mouthfeel is concentrated and adds some pleasantly bitter, earthy citrus pith. This is linear and taut and provides utter refreshment. What a gorgeous, enlivening wine. The finish is taut, citric and 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.
