A wonderfully tangy note of cress and lime peel creates an unusual but very appetizing nose in this wine. The slender palate adds lemony freshness and a mineral tone reminiscent of wet pebbles. A lovely, clear-cut example of the variety, with gentle but pristine flavors and a refreshing finish. Lovely now, it's sure to round out in the coming years. Drink 2018–2026.

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.
