A slight funkiness accompanies the salty yeast notes on the nose of this wine. The funk disappears on the lithe and elegant palate as wonderfully pure notes of green pear and a moreish lick of sage, ivy, moss and fern combine. A lovely and irresistible flavor combination.

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.
