Origin: Clare Valley
Region: South Australia
Style: Light-bodied red wine made in stainless steel
Nose of strawberry, watermelon, light herbs and rhubarb. Palate is light and bright with medium plus acidity. Refreshing blast of fruit again on the palate, complemented by some nice salinity. Light, bright and cleansing. There’s a touch of bitterness on the finish that doesn’t show well as a sipper but works excellently with food.
Koerner Wine is a partnership between brothers Damon and Jonathan Koerner. The wines are produced from fruit grown in the Watervale area of the Clare Valley, with the majority coming from the family vineyard. The winemaking philosophy is very simple – that is the wines are made in the vineyard. The Koerners pick early and use very hands-off winemaking techniques. As a result, the wines are light, fresh, textured and well-structured with high drinkability in mind.
