The enticing scent of green mango chopped with mandarin leaves sets the exotic tone. On the palate the aromatic leafiness becomes even more delicious and pronounced. White pepper, citrus leaves, and rich, ripe tropical fruit sear on the palate. This is dramatic stuff and oh so moreish. Hints of candied lime zest roar in the background. The spicy finish is very long and leaves you wanting more.

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.
