User Reviews for Cantina Isarco Sudtirol Kerner

Winemaker's Notes:

Even as the youngest winery in the Süd Tirol the Cantina Produttori Valle Isarco has already become synonymous with fine white wines. The climate and topography bequeaths the wines their unique and distinctive character. The inclination and height of slopes (called Leitn) helps. Some of the vines grow at 800-900 metres altitude. White grapes flourish in particular because of the nutrient-rich (yet porous) soil, the number of sunny days and even distribution of rainfall. Star of this range is the Kerner. The Kerner grape is a hybrid, a disease-resistant cross between Riesling and the red grape Trollinger (also known as Schiava Gentile or Edelvernatsch). This example is simply extraordinary with aromas of green apples, melons and cream, before a soft curtain of delicious acidity opens into a full-bodied white wine full of peaches and apples and citrus fruits; the tell-tale distinctions of Riesling are backed by the strong mineral and nutty textures of cool climate Italian whites. This rich, complex wine can tame most dishes; we had it with pot-roasted partridge with spinach and an array of root veg.
