Clare Valley, SA

Complex, balanced and precise Riesling coming from one of the Clare Valley's most exciting producers!



Out of Stock

It’s a ripping, rollicking, exceptional riesling. For drinkability, this is through the roof.

About the Wine

This fits into the Goldilocks Zone of Koerner's Riesling line up. Partly fermented in stainless steel and in amphora, with a slightly early harvest to bring out some vigour, this is neither too heavy nor too light, not too textural and not too linear. It's just right.

Freshness abounds here. If you like a citrus focused Riesling, you can't go wrong here. It has an electric energy, pulsing with limes and grapefruit. Behind this is some softness, letting stone fruit, lemongrass and fresh sugar cane juice come through. Sheer refreshment and delight.

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.

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."

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Sees most of its resting time in ceramic vessels (rest stainless steel). The wine has this lovely powdery texture, a bit of extra depth, fine, light, savoury-nuttiness to taste and a rollicking feast of green apple with lime squeezed on a dusting of cinnamon spice. Extra lengthy, tight through the finish, mineral plus-plus, as they’d say. It’s a ripping, rollicking, exceptional riesling. For drinkability, this is through the roof." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
