- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
The Koerner brothers are running head on at Clare Valley wine. They've put together one of the region's most dynamic ranges of wine, investigating unsung pockets of the area with energy and creativity. It's exciting stuff. The La Corse is not your average Clare Valley red. Here the boys combine Sangiovese and Malbec with a splash of Grenache and the underground Italian variety, Sciaccarello to create a vibrant, mischievous red with epic drinkability. Whole berry ferments for max vitality and ageing in ceramic egg and old oak for a pure, breezy feel. This is a new look Clare Valey red.
What it Tastes Like
Purple jubes, black currnant lollies. A silky, juicy, elemental feel. Fine grainy tannin with a tight, fresh feel. Red fruits galore and a crisp texture. Great drinking. Not crazy complex but floads of fun.
Numerous batches of fruit where sourced from Gullyview, Vivian and Attunga Vineyards. The fruit was picked over various days through out vintage and in the winery was 100% destemmed. Whole berry ferments occurred using indigenous yeasts, they where plunged once or twice a day and generally lasted 2 weeks. Following this the fruit was pressed to tank where it settled off large lees for a few days and then was transferred to ceramic egg and old oak for 6 months of maturation. The wine was then blended to tank where it sat on fine lees for a further 3 months. Following this, a small sulphur addition was made and the wine was bottled without fining or filtration.

About the Producer
Koerner Wine is a partnership between brothers Damon and Jonathan Koerner. Both grew up in the Clare Valley but have since spent time working and studying around Australia and abroad. All wines are produced from fruit grown in the Watervale area of the Clare Valley, with the majority coming from their family’s vineyard, Gullyview. This vineyard has been owned and managed by their parents, Anthony and Christine Koerner, for the past 35 years.
The Clare Valley knows what it does, and does it very, very well. Riesling and Shiraz are the rockstars of the region and with some of the most famous wines in the county coming from this small pocket of SA, the Clare’s reputation for quality only grows year on year.
