About The Wine

Loving the new faces in premium Aussie Rosé? Well, this little number is another you need to add to your list.

This is made from an interesting blend of two varieties: Sangiovese and Sciaccerrelo (pronounced shak-ar-ello). The grapes were on skins for 24 hours before being pressed and sent to ceramic egg for fermentation and then 5 months on lees in stainless steel before bottling.

It sits firmly in the dry and crisp Rosé category. The lees work taking the edge off, but the lively acidity is the spine of the wine - the thing that drives it long and refreshing through the mouth.

Tension and precision in Rosé is brilliant when you find it, the Koerner boys have got it in spades.

 

About Koerner

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.

DDS review

Crackling with energy and zip. It's a racy Rosé with zingy white strawberry, a dusting of cinnamon and some orange peel notes. Tight and dry through the finish with dart-like precision. Uber refreshing. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

The Sangiovese (75%) and Sciaccerrelo (25%) fruit was sourced from the flats of Vivian vineyard, which consists of darker clay on limestone.

The fruit was picked on the 25th February. The grapes spent 24 hours on skins before being pressed and settled overnight. Natural fermentation happened in ceramic amphora and lasted around 3 weeks, the wine stayed in ceramic on full lees for 2 months. It was then racked and blended to stainless steel to sit on fine lees for a further 5 months.

Prior to bottling a small sulphur addition was made and the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered
