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.

  • Weingut Aust Kerner Halbtrocken 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Nice spicy toned nose is full of nutmeg and melon aromas along with plenty of slightly tropical and honied fruits with a hint of ginseng. A lightly toasty apricot pastry note on entry leads to a midpalate that is pretty dry but round and opulent with good acid and nice detail to the melon and apple fruit. The sugar here lends good length to the ... Read More

  • Stoneboat Vineyards Chorus 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This year's edition of the popular white blend "Chorus" has a rich nose of garden flowers, peach and orange marmalade; on entry there is a richer, more unctuous mouth feel with almond bitterness on the finish. Not as refreshing as the more dilute 2011 but there is more punch and some elegance. Should please most palates. 86 points. Read More
