Wine Review: This pale straw colored Kerner from California opens with a Bosc pear bouquet with faint hints of lychee and grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a very tasty green apple with notes of gentle minerality and Bosc pear. I also detected hints of lime and a touch of clementine. The finish is dry and refreshing. This Kerner is a perfect summer wine for a hot day at the beach. I would thoroughly enjoy it with grilled scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Kerner is a cross of Riesling and Trollinger with origins in Germany. Our Kerner comes from the only planting in California. The 2016 is a dry, aromatic wine that's gently floral and spicy with a crisp, medium bodied finish that is brightened by bracing acidity.
