Scintillating riesling here... Hold onto your hats.
About The Wine
This is a new star Riesling in the Koerner line up.
The best block of Riesling on their Gullyview vineyard, picked a little earlier for higher acidity. Fermented in a combination of stainless and ceramic egg and left for 10 months on lees.
This is the Koerner boys going for the best and baddest Riesling they can muster. It's a blistering wine. Fine, dart-like and piercing, this is Clare Valley at its finest.
Mike Bennie was blown away in his 95 point review. Chances are, if you buy a bottle, you will be too.
The Koerner brothers, Damon and Jono, are on a mission to bring the classic wine styles of the Clare Valley into the modern day.
They play with a mix of 'classic' Clare Valley varieties such as Riesling, Cabernet and Malbec and a suite of alternate varieties that show a different side of this iconic Australian wine region.
With fruit sourced from their own family vineyard and a move toward more contemporary winemaking, utilising terracotta and ceramic for fermenting and making as little additions as possible in the winery, it's easy to see why their star is on the rise.
As Mike Bennie recently wrote, "Some of the most interesting, delicious wines in Australia are emerging, and the reinvention and sexing up of Clare Valley is apparent."
