2019 Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. Kontrapunkt - Eden Valley Kerner

Barossa - Eden Valley Kerner

Vineyard:  - 100% Kerner (A.K.A. Weißer Herold) grown on a single estate in the Fechner vineyard, Northern Eden Valley/Barossa region.

Season: Exceptional quality was achieved from the 2019 vintage but extremely limited quantities produced; due to the low rainfall. Frost disrupted the first vine buds in spring and throughout flowering which again reduced overall grape supply. A dry ripening through summer kept disease pressure to a minimum.

Wine making: NA

Appearance: Pale straw and green hue.

Aroma/Bouquet: Herbaceous, white peach, ginger, pear and citrus notes.

Palate:  Light and simply delightful with a clean crisp finish and little acidity. Hints of spice and apple with a dry length. If willing to cellar, this wine will certainly reward; expect texture and complexity.

Food Pairing:  Asian cuisine, snapper curry or a delightful Moroccan Tagine.

Alcohol: 13%

pH: 3.2

Acidity: 5.1g/L

Residual Sugar: NA

Production: 170 cases

Cellar potential: now to 10 years
