Dried rose perfume here, in with blackcurrant, plum, milk chocolate and a little mint. It’s medium-bodied, kind of light in a way, but densely packed with flavour and feels concentrated. Some tobacco and dried herb, cool acidity, pulverised rock tannin, and a long sweet red fruit and floral finish. A modern take on classic Bordeaux, crying out for slow roasted lamb shoulder.

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. Generally, these wines are light, fresh, textured and well-structured with high drinkability in mind. To achieve this the Koerner’s pick early and use very hands-off winemaking techniques.
