Kerner is the pride and joy of Astley Vineyard. Related to Riesling, these uncommon vines were planted in 1971. A unique English wine that warrants ageing, or simply savouring.
Kerner consistantly shows improvement with age. With six years of bottle age, this is a mature, complex wine.
2014 Vintage - Inviting aromas of toasted nuts, warm apple crumble, and a whiff of petrol. Immensely reminscent of an aged Riesling or Chenin Blanc. The palate remains fresh with medium plus acidity and plenty of body.
Only 300 bottles are available of this vintage.
For those who enjoy:
- Mature wines
