Aromas of vanilla, cream and baked pear create a foretaste of what is to come: a rich, rounded and very generous palate with the distinct but fitting touch of oak, kept in shape by a core of zesty, ripe but bright acidity. The result is an unusual but very balanced, rich wine which is good now but has the stuffing to evolve. Drink now until 2020.

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.
