Mellow yet ripe russet pear notes are spiked with lemon freshness on the nose of this wine. That wonderful and enticing contrast continues on the palate, where the juicy, rounded ripeness of pear and the brisk streak of lemon gain control alternatingly. It makes for exciting, refreshing and joyful drinking. The finish is brisk, clean, lasting and dry. Drink 2018–2028.

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.
