This wine's nose is dominated by the scent of freshly cut russet pear but also has a streak of citrus pith. That pithiness makes itself felt on the palate, where it's joined by bright, inviting lemon notes and rich, textured, yeasty savor. A wonderfully concentrated wine with an earthy edge.

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.
