Manni Nössing, Kerner, Südtirol, Eisacktaler, 2020
(at Decanter's Tasting Suite, London, 30 Aug 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2028
A crossing of Riesling and Trollinger, Kerner is usually used in blends but here it shines as a varietal. Subtle yellow fruit, herb and apple scents lead to a round palate with juicy pear, peach, herb and yellow fruit flavours. Mineral edged, its Riesling parentage shows through on the tight, dry finish.
