2022 Koerner Watervale Riesling

2022 Koerner Watervale Riesling


We are very excited about the Rieslings from 2022, by far our best yet, putting them alongside the 2017 vintage. This one in particular has incredible floral lift on the nose and is showing typical Watervale lemon, lime and citrus characters on the pallet, along with more exotic, ginger spice and stunning minrality from the bed of limestone the vineyards sit on. The texture that comes with this wine is what we love, silky, soft mouth feel and acid that gives the wine high drinkability and makes it super refreshing. This is one of our staple wines and the 2022 vintage will not disappoint, we can’t wait for you to taste. - Jono Koerner
