Honeyed, ripe pear meets far earthier notes of cep mushrooms on the nose. The palate majors on bright, softly sweet pear notes but ends in a harmonious, citrus-fresh dryness. A balanced wine of great subtlety with an absolutely clean-cut 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.
