The glorious aromatics of the ripest oranges play on the nose. There even is a slight hint of candied peel. The palate is opulent with fruit expression but held in check by lovely ripe lemon freshness. The palate is concentrated and has lots of energetic direction. An earthy edge grounds things beautifully. Lasting and lovely.

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.
