- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
Damon and Jonothan Koerner are exploring a new face of the Clare Valley. Looking at working with sustainable growers, making wines with little interference and diving into a world of new varieties for the region.
Here’s a new kid on the Clare Valley block. Sciaccarello (Shak-ar-ello) is an Italian red skinned grape, originating from Corsica. It’s known for being perfumed, vibrant and rarely seen as a solo variety, traditionally blended away.
Here the Koerners make it sing. Made in a ceramic egg, here you get the essence of the variety without the influence of clumsy oak. It’s a light bodied red of serious charisma. Frisky and fresh feeling with a unique feel, curious wine drinkers looking for interesting light bodied reds should walk this way.
Only 70 dozen made.
What It Tastes Like
Gee this is good drinking. It’s a light breezy red which tastes of cherry and blackcurrant juice. Really lively, crunchy acid. Light on its feet with a light and airy feel. Ruby grapefruit acidity, loads of personality. Big win here for the Koerner boys.
Produced using sustainable viticultural practices. Hand harvested, indigenous yeast, whole berry, open fermentation for two weeks with light hand plunging, aged on fine lees in ceramic egg for ten months. Minimal sulphur added and bottled without fining or filtration.
Bottle Size: 750ml
Drink Until: 2021
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.
