Notes of apple immediately rise from the glass: Ripe and mellow Golden Delicious as well as crisp Granny Smith. A background of shortbread appears with a little more air. On the palate the mousse is very lively, almost frothy, highlighting the briskness and freshness of this cuvée. Crisp apple and citrus notes underline the purity and freshness against a backdrop of subtle autolysis. The finish is bright and clean.

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.
