The Corsican variety Sciaccarello has been given gentle handling and rendered as a lighter, fresher, summery kind of wine style. All crunch and crispness, sour-cherry meets pomegranate juice with a dusting of herb and spice. It sits light and ultra fresh in the palate, a sophisticated juice more than a wine, per se, though you know you’re into something vinous with the lingering ‘grapeiness’ that follows that lean, racy crackle of ruddy liquid.

Koerner Wine is a partnership between brothers Damon and Jonathan Koerner. The wines are produced from fruit grown in the Watervale area of the Clare Valley, with the majority coming from the family vineyard. Gullyview vineyard has been owned and managed by their parents, (Christine & Anthony Koerner), for the past 38 years. The winemaking philosophy is very simple – the wines are made in the vineyard.
