    April 16, 2014 - Attractive dry Kerner wine – Kerner is a German crossbreed between Riesling and Vernatsch (Trollinger) – made by the Augustinian monks of the Neustift monastery (Brixen/South-Tyrol, founded in 1142). Bright straw yellow in color with golden reflections and a nice floral nose with fragrances of peach, mango, melon, elderberry and a hint of clove. The elegant, not too complex palate shows pure citrus and stone fruit, a smooth texture and a well-integrated acidity. A slight touch of sweetness in the aftertaste. Drink it now and over the next two years.

    Aantrekkelijke droge Kerner-wijn – Kerner is een Duitse kruising tussen Riesling en Vernatsch (Trollinger) –, gemaakt door de Augustijner monniken van het klooster Neustift (Brixen/Zuid-Tirol, opgericht in 1142). Helder strogeel van kleur met wat gouden reflecties en een mooie florale neus met aroma’s van perzik, mango, meloen, vlierbes en een vleugje kruidnagel. Een elegante, niet al te complexe wijn, gedomineerd door steenvruchten- en citrusfruit, zacht van textuur en met een fraai geïntegreerde aciditeit. Een zweem van restsuiker in de afdronk. Te drinken: nu en in de komende twee jaar.

    January 29, 2014 - Light caramel, duchess pear, citrus aromas. Slightly sweetish, funny, lemonade-like, easy drinking. Moderate length.

    January 12, 2013 - Saturday with David White (Domaine Wine Storage & Sun Wah - Chicago, IL): Nice melon tones fold together nicely with some pear and crushed rocks. This didn't blow me away with complexity, but the fruti was really pure and clean. This was my first experience with Kerner and I'm interested to try more.
