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.
This riesling comes from the 99-year-old Parish vineyard that sits on blue slate. For ferment, 10% goes into a ceramic amphora with the balance in stainless steel before transfer into stainless steel for nine months nap. Textural, sprightly and persistent.
