An intriguing mix of freshly cut apple and orange marmalade emanates from this wine. The palate is dry but shows unusual notes of licorice and not unpleasant edges of bitterness aligned with bright, sprightly lemony freshness. Lemon and licorice linger in an unusual 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.
