Region: Clare Valley - South Australia
Winemaker: Damon & Jono Koerner 2019 Young Guns of Wine !
Varietal(s): 100% Vermentino
Trust the brothers Koerner to put an interesting spin on an already interesting variety.
This is a Vermentino with some attitude. Here the boys use a canny combination of skin contact, ageing in a ceramic vessel and old oak to bring extra layers of complexity to a variety often thought of as mono-dimensional.
This is smashability writ large. Full-flavoured and rich, with a delicious creamy core.
