“Every now and then you encounter a wine that blows your mind. Kerner is one of them. Haven't heard of it? You're not alone."

93 points Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion "Single-vineyard Eden Valley kerner (a mashup of riesling and trollinger). Pale straw with lemon, lime and green apple fruit tones. Hints of marzipan, almond blossom, a splash of nashi pear and a handful of crushed quartz ... some light whey and a suggestion of cut fennel further back. Lean, crystalline and lemony with plenty of verve, briny acidity and inherent drinkability. Get on the kerner train!"
