The notion of freshly cut Conference pear peel mixes with hints of zesty lemon and juicy, yellow Mirabelle plum on the nose. The palate brings that same juiciness to the fore that unites expressive fruitiness with tempering, tart and wonderful freshness. Beautifully concentrated and squeaky clean. This is a lovely interplay with a zingy, lemony, dry and long finish.

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.
