An almost exotic tinge of guava and lime plays on the nose. The palate majors on expressive, aromatic notes of lemon and green orange peel, supported by a fine, frothy mousse and dollop of stone-fruit richness. Made from Riesling grown in the coolest part of the Wachau, this wine is unusual but utterly moreish with a fruity but dry finish.

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.
