PIGATO VERMENTINO 2021 KOERNER

KOERNER - PIGATO VERMENTINO 2021


TASTING NOTES

Vermentino is one of those varieties that really shines with some skin contact and a few winemaking tricks. It adds an extra dimension of appeal.

Case in point is this Pigato Vermentino from Koerner wines in the Clare Valley. Vermentino was planted around 10 years ago on the family vineyard in Watervale, a pocket on Terra Rossa soils selected as best for this variety.

The wine spent three weeks on skins in concrete open vessels during fermentation before being pressed back to concrete and old oak. Bottled without filtering or filtration. It's a winning style, complete with slightly cloudy and grippy elements.

Curious and thirst quenching in equal parts.

ABOUT

The Koerner brothers, Damon and Jono, are on a mission to bring the classic wine styles of the Clare Valley into the modern day.

They play with a mix of 'classic' Clare Valley varieties such as Riesling, Cabernet and Malbec and a suite of alternate varieties that show a different side of this iconic Australian wine region.

With fruit sourced from their own family vineyard and a move toward more contemporary winemaking, utilising terracotta and ceramic for fermenting and making as little additions as possible in the winery, it's easy to see why their star is on the rise.

As Mike Bennie recently wrote, "Some of the most interesting, delicious wines in Australia are emerging, and the reinvention and sexing up of Clare Valley is apparent."
