Very subtle hints of green and yellow pears play on the nose, intensifying on the palate and coming across round and plump, but not without some straightening, tonic freshness. There is a satisfying depth here, something mineral, and its elegance ensures that it's firm but not overbearing. A testament to what Pinot Blanc can be in the right hands.

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.
