Acacia Barrel Kerner – 2019

Acacia barrel aged Kerner

£16.00

Product description

Undoubtedly a first for the UK, this bright, but noticeably barrel aged wine combines our unique old Kerner vines with an unusual 100% Acacia barrel. Great with a cheeseboard or white meats.

Made of: 98% Kerner, 2% Madeleine Angevine

Tastes of: Ripe lemon, Gently woody & textural

Sweetness: Dry

Acidity: High

Barrel impact: Light but noticeable. 3 months in first use, light toast barrel.

The inspiration for our unusual 100% Acacia barrel came from the fact that we grow Kerner. The world's most renowned Kerner is grown in Alto Adige (Alpine Italy) where a traditional practice is fermenting and ageing it in Acacia. Compared to Oak, Acacia is more subtle, and adds flavours of honey & flowers.

For the barrel's first use, we aged our Kerner from 2019 for 3 months, followed by 2 years in bottle. The result is a mouthwatering but textural wine that tastes of spiced lemon, with a gently woody midpalate. Pair with cheese, white meats, and rich fish dishes.
