Despite this wine's shy nose, it loses no time in presenting ripe, rounded and aromatic pear fruit on the palate, which is made more precise by bright lemon freshness. That zestiness pervades the concentrated palate and underlines the juiciness of its yellow pear fruit. The finish is dry and clean, with lasting freshness. 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.
