Place: Watervale — Clare Valley, SA
Brothers Damon and Jono Koerner are doing good things in the Clare Valley. They showcase the region through lenses old and new, championing both classic expressions of Riesling, Cabernet and Malbec alongside interesting varieties like Sciacarello and Vermentino.
Most of their fruit comes from the family vineyard, Gullyview, with some fruit coming from neighbouring vineyards Vivian and Parish. Their wines are energetic expressions of the Clare Valley and the grapes they work with.
Grown on rich red clay over limestone. 49-year-old vines. Fermented in concrete egg for two months then transferred into stainless steel. Abounding in lime pith and stony minerality. Generous but linear.
