Kerner

As a cross between Trollinger and Riesling, this grape is quite robust. Kerner prefers a medium location with good soils and, when grown in such areas, produces wines that, with their higher acidities, are a little reminiscent of Riesling. As late vintages, the wines made from Kerner grapes are strong, round and nutty and possess a pleasant acidity. Simple Kerner wines should preferably be enjoyed young and fresh.
