2021 Kofererhof Weingut Kerner DOC
This tiny estate, made up of a patchwork of little vineyards at 700-800 metres located at the foot of the Dolomites. Each of these plots are unique terroirs and are planted specifically to suit to each variety. Although Kofererhof estate has existed for nearly 900 years, it’s only since current winemaker’s Guenther Kerschbaumer grandfather acquired it, and his son and now grandson Guenther have plotted and replanted, that varieties like Kerner, Sylvaner, Riesling, Pinot Grigio and Müller Thurgau are sited with such precision.
Brilliant very pale straw colour with a faint greenish tinge around the outskirts and a watery hue. Drifting from the glass are aromas of lime, green apple skin, mandarin, quince and flinty mineral notes. Crunchy lime and green apple fruits are delivered with plenty of intensity and tension. Finishes dry with racy laser like acidity. Notions of flint and steely mineral characters are infused through the long scrumptious and highly energised conclusion.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
