Alcohol/vol 13.5%
A particular specialty of the Valle Isarco. Greenish to bright yellow in color. Peaches, apricots, and tones of tangerines on the nose. Very lively, juicy, and sleek on the palate, with a mineral-rich finish.

Enticing aromas suggesting ripe yellow stone fruit, dried Alpine herb, eucalyptus and white rose waft out of the glass. On the linear palate, a smoky mineral note accompanies ripe apricot and grapefruit while vibrant acidity gives it great tension.

Crisp acidity frames the expressive flavors of tangerine and apricot fruit in this lithe, light-bodied white, accented by subtle ground ginger and lemon thyme notes. Stony finish. Drink now through 2023. 12,000 cases made, 4,000 cases imported.

The 2019 Kerner shows a pretty set of sweet yellow and white flowers, honied yet also lifted by hints of zested lemon, then complicated by smoky minerals and stone dust. It's soft and textural, giving way to sour apples with a salty edge, presenting a round and floral expression yet buzzing with citrus-inspired tension and a cheek-puckering pinch that lasts for well over a minute.
