Kurtasch Kerner Alto Adige


The Kerner grape is a cross between Schiava (Vernatsch) and Riesling. The south-east facing vineyards at 800 m a.s.l. are ideal for the cool climate grape variety. Due to the high temperature difference between day and night, the grapes retain their firm acidity and develop intense fruit and flower aromas of yellow peach and lilac during the long ripening period. The Kerner Selection owes its pleasant minerality to the calcareous, gravelly-loamy dolomite soil. The firm acidity supports the minerality on the palate and ends in a long, juicy finish.
