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.
Tastes of: Ripe lemon, Gently woody & textural
Barrel impact: Light but noticeable. 3 months in first use, light toast barrel.
This Christmas: Drink with Christmas dinner or a cheeseboard. An interesting gift.
The inspiration for our unusual 100% Acacia barrel came from the fact that we grow Kerner. The world's best 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 will suit cheese, white meats, and rich fish dishes.
