A funky, earthy touch of freshly peeled russet pear hovers on the nose of this wine. A slight lemon oil note shines through. The palate has pure, ripe citrus notes of lemon and tangerine and a pleasantly bitter, pithy backdrop that lends texture and structure. The finish is reminiscent of pure lemon. Drink 2018–2028.

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.
