Only in action since 1969, this aromatic cross between the red Trollinger and Riesling slowly became one of the top ten grapes of Germany. This Italian take from Trentino-Alto Adige (or Sudtirol to the German speaking majority living there) is the perfect pairing for seafood and spicy, Asian inspired fare. The bouquet bursts with expressive stone fruit and citrus while the palate is full and soft. For a refreshing change of pace, swap your Riesling for this less usual white.
The 2019 Kerner is spicy and complex with a display of crushed stone, ginger, dusty florals and dried apricot. Silky textures are contrasted by brisk acids and minerals, creating a poised yet fully satiating expression. Green apple, sour melon and tropical citrus resonates throughout, leaving a salty twang that slowly tapers off.
