The scent of freshly cut Conference pear peels combines with crisp, green apple notes in this wine. The palate shows the characteristic, yeastiness that shimmers with saltiness, but juicy pear fruit plays the starring role. The finish is totally moreish.

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.
