Wonderfully aromatic overtones of rose hip tisane and spicy verbena hover on the nose among a more obvious ripe peach note. The palate takes this ripe peach and edges it with wonderfully stringent lemon zestiness. That spicy edge is intensified by a lovely phenolic undertow. This is a nuanced, layered and intriguing picture of an aromatic, off-dry wine with a seemingly endless finish. Lovely now but certain to evolve. Drink now through 2028.

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.
