The nose of this wine boasts pear, celery salt and herbal spice notes. The palate delivers a savory tingle of white pepper and salty soy but also adds luminous, fresh, ripe lemon zest for an incisive, savory and dramatic package. The finish is lip-smacking and long. 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.
