A touch of russet apple peel plays with the lemon notes on the nose of this wine, suggesting riper, juicier fruit that is made manifest on the palate. Full-fruited, juicy red apple, yellow pear and ripe Meyer lemon notes abound and dance aromatically on the palate. It all comes together on a pithy vein of citrus freshness. This is exuberant and joyful and will evolve if you can actually resist drinking it. 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.
