Description: A 1929 cross-breed of Riesling and Vernatsch. This one from the revered Fechner vineyard in Eden Valley is the Southern Hemisphere's only 100% varietal Kerner. Bright, textural and ridiculously moreish.
Grape Variety: Kerner
Region: Eden Valley Angaston Hills, Penrice
Reviews & Awards: Fresh and lively: initial pear split by spice, lychee, creamed honey, grilled kaffir lime skin, stony quartz with a touch rosewater on the pull-away. Offering some flesh to the front palate with richer than expected elements before the acidity refreshes with a lime granita like finish and a slightly tacky, drying phenolic grip. A moreish wine of difference." 93 points - Regan Drew, Vino Notebook
"This has quite a restrained apple and lemon nose. Apple peel, too. The palate is fresh, lively and has some attractive, fresh green apple and pear to close. Drink now. Screw cap." 91 points - James Suckling Reviews Stewards' Choice Trophy - Australian Alternative Variety Wine Sho
