Our Library releases are a chance to (re)taste special wines with several extra years of bottle age. Not every wine deserves a second release, but we think these ones do.
Kerner is the pride and joy of Astley Vineyard. Related to Riesling, these uncommon vines were planted in 1971. It is very rarely, if ever, found in the UK.
Kerner consistantly shows improvement with age. Now with seven years of bottle ageing, this is a mature and complex wine.
2013 Vintage - Distinct petrol aroma, with an almond, honeyed palate. Faint suggestion of smoke and dried lime.
For those who enjoy:
- Mature wines
- Riesling/aged Chenin Blanc
- Something different
