100% Kerner

reviews

“Kerner is a cross of Riesling and Trollinger with origins in Germany. It also makes fine, aromatic whites in the Alto Adige region of northeastern Italy. Our Kerner comes from the only planting in California.” – David Ramey

palate

Dry, aromatic wine that’s gently floral and spicy with a crisp, medium bodied finish.

vintage notes

Winter 2015 was the warmest on record, leading to early budbreak. But cooler, wetter weather in the Spring months slowed development, leading to an extended bloom period. The resulting uneven fruit set meant a smaller crop and smaller berries with good concentration of flavors. Weather throughout the Summer growing season was consistently warm, promoting even ripening and an early harvest.

winemaking

Whole cluster pressed, native yeast, non-malolactic fermentation and sur lies aged in stainless steel barrels for three months.
