Koerner Pigato Vermentino - Clare Valley
Bottle size: 750 ml
The Vermentino fruit used to produce this wine was sourced a slight northern aspect of Gullyview vineyard. The vines are 10 years old and planted on red clay on limestone, ‘Terra Rosa’ soil. We hand picked the fruit on the 9th & 12th of March at 10.5 & 11 baume respectively.
In the winery the fruit was 100% de-stemmed and fermented in open fermenters for an average of 3 weeks. The ferments were hand plunged once a day before pressing. The wine was matured in stainless steel tanks on fine lees for 6 months. Prior to bottling the wine was racked and a small sulphur addition made. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Koerner Wine is a partnership between brothers Damon and Jonathan Koerner. We grew up in the Clare Valley but have since spent time working and studying around Australia and abroad. Our wines are produced from fruit grown in the Watervale area of the Clare Valley, with the majority coming from our family vineyard, Gullyview. Gullyview vineyard has been owned and managed by Mum & Dad, (Christine & Anthony Koerner), for the past 38 years.
Our winemaking philosophy is very simple - the wines are made in the vineyard. The date of picking is the most crucial part of the process. Once the grapes make their way to the winery, they are carefully nurtured and each batch treated individually. An understanding of terroir and the individual varieties enables us to produce unique wines using nothing but the grapes and a small amount of sulphur!
We attempt to produce wines to a style that we both enjoy drinking. Generally these wines are light, fresh, textured and well structured with high drinkability in mind. To achieve this we pick early and use very hands off winemaking techniques. Our reds are bright, vibrant and can be enjoyed young with a great balance between primary fruit, acidity and phenolics. Our whites express their aromatics and primary fruit, while showing mouthfeel, structure and texture.
