Kerner 2020

Kerner 2020

Our off-dry Kerner is like sunshine in a glass with aromas of ripe pear, tangerine and honeysuckle. Pineapple, yellow apple and honeyed pear grace the palate with just a touch of sweetness and a spiced red tea leaf finish. Kerner is happy by herself or alongside dishes with exotic flavours: Moroccan chicken, curries, or Thai fish cakes.
