Juicy notes of canned mandarin segments suggest utter ripeness on the nose. Measured richness continues on the palate where a good dollop of residual sweetness lets this mandarin fruit shine, while zestiness never lets this slip beyond freshness. The palate stays toned but full. This carries off a lovely balance with its medium-dry finish.

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.
