Kerner

Common synonyms: Herold Triumpf, Herold Weiss, Schiava Grossa x Riesling Renano We 25/30, Trollinger x Riesling Renano We S 25/30, We S 2530, Weinsberg S 25-30

Parentage of the grape: Kerner is a cross between Schiava Grossa (Trollinger) and Riesling.

History of the grape: Kerner was bred by German scientists in 1969. It is late-budding and frost-resistant, making it ideal for the cool growing climate. It has been used as an ingredient in Liebframilch, but that’s a bit of a waste, since good Kerner is well worth drinking on its own. Best of all, Kerner is named for a local 19th century writer of drinking songs.

Characteristics of the grape: Rielsing-like, with similar floral and fruit aromatics, but not as refined as Riesling.

Regions where the grape currently is important: In Germany, it is grown mostly in the Pfalz and Rheinhessen, as well as in its home, Wurttemberg, and in Franken. It is also grown in England, northern Italy, Japan, and South Africa.

Kerner on Snooth

  • Had to suffer through too many mediocre wines tonight: an atrocious Nahe kerner Kabinett, a so-so Spatlese from the same place, a relatively nasty Mosel riesling Auslese, and from Mendoza a horrible throat jerking malbec following a so-so cab.The salvation, at least relatively speaking, was a merlot blend (60% merlot, 13% cab franc, 7% cab sauv,...

Gabe prefers his Petite Sirahs with lots of age on them, and his Sauvignon Blancs to be fermented in Concrete Eggs.

Despite the oak, Markus still manages to elicit the inherent acidity from these grapes. Acidic wine, after all, is his birthright.
