Wet pebbles, nutty roundness, pear peel and a touch of smoke: the aromas in this wine will make you see Pinot Gris with fresh eyes. The palate has a translucent, filigreed slenderness, yet it packs a whole world of flavor. The midpalate reveals a sonorous backdrop of smokiness, against which fresh lemon notes soar. Dry, structured, eleganct and ageworthy. Drink 2018–2028.

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.
