Old Vine Kerner 2014

£30.00Price

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 five years of bottle age, this is a matured, complex wine. 

 

2014 Vintage - Inviting aromas of toasted nuts, warm apple crumble and elderflower. 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.

Reviews & Awards (2015 vintage)

Matthew Jukes, Feb 2018:

"One of the most iconic and romantic of all English dry white wines...I have stalked this creation for many years because it has a unique flavour and texture and it is unequivocally English from the first molecule of Jasmine and honeysuckle scent, to the louche, juicy, thrilling finish...I have tasted a few worthy examples from northern Italy, but Astley's blush-inducing wine is the finest version I have had the pleasure of meeting"
