We are really excitied about this vintage. 2018 was the best year for this late-ripening variety that we have had in the 30 years since our first harvest! The grapes were perfect and fully-ripe at harvest.
However the acidity is fresh. Because the grapes were so good we decided not to de-acidify the must but to allow it to mature and round out in its own time, and the wine is still improving in the cellar. It should be at its peak 2022-25.
Great with seafood, salads and spicy dishes already for those who relish a fresh, intense wine, or if you intend to cellar it, but will be more balanced later.
100% Kernling grape. Kernling is a Riesling crossing with a lot of Riesling character, the pink clone of better-known, white Kerner.
The wine is aromatic and fruity. Fresh acidity. Already delicious but will become more rounded and complex over the next 5 years
