A creamy whiff of fresh, juicy yellow pear creates a most appetizing nose in this wine. That pure, friendly fruit dominates the palate, illuminating a background of spice and herb notes that recall dried sage and fennel seed. Lemon freshness frames everything and makes for a lovely, full-flavored mouthful.

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.
