A deep, intense pink makes this very inviting. The 2014 vintage of Umathum's famous and delicious 'Rosa' is less berry-tastic than in warmer years, but it has verve, body and the generosity of cherry fruit. Drink soon, possibly with salads and light salmon dishes. Take note of the peppery 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.
