VINTNERS COMMENT: This Kerner is a classy and spicy white wine. It's colour shimmers stramineous with greenish reflexes in the glas. The taste is tender with an influence of peach and nutmeg. The mouth feel is full and strong.
This wine prevails with its intensive, unmistakable taste and its racy character. It is an excellent aperitif, also an ideal accompaniment for fish, seafood and spicy or rich appetizers.
Colour: pale straw yellow with green reflexes. Aroma: multi-layered, intensive with fruity tones of ripe apple and an exotic touch of grapefruit, somewhat nutty, tangy with notes of white pepper. Taste: substantial and full of pedigree and elegance, creamy structure, salty and minerally, harmonic and inviting, long, juicy and fresh finish
