Koerner The Clare
Jono and Damon Koerner are the lads with the big shed full of concrete eggs who make Clare Valley wines with aplomb. They always deliver and seem to be accruing industry accolades all the time. This wine has been a long time staple and proves that the kids may be drinking their cloudy fizzy stuff but the great South Australian Bordeaux blend will never be beaten.
Dried rose perfume here, in with blackcurrant, plum, milk chocolate and a little mint. It’s medium-bodied, kind of light in a way, but densely packed with flavour and feels concentrated. Some tobacco and dried herb, cool acidity, pulverised rock tannin, and a long sweet red fruit and floral finish.
