Yeasty funk that has notions of quince, lemon and beer makes for an interesting and fruity nose. The palate brings tart and pure red apple, bright lemon and a touch of aromatic stone fruit. The fizz on this pét nat is very tender and subtle, but the purity of fruit and the wonderful texture of the wine make it rather convincing and moreish.

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.
