The scent of russet-pear peel on the nose is both pure and earthy. The palate shows a rounded texture despite the toned muscle of the wine. There is real concentration here, characterized by flavors of ripe pear and ripe citrus that bring lively juiciness to the palate. Texture and flavor draw you in, and the finish is pure and long.

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.
