  • Score: 92 Vintage 2021 Vinous Media The 2021 Kerner is highly expressive, with masses of young peach, dried apricots, sweet sage and wet river stones forming its bouquet. It washes across the palate with silky textures and medium-bodied weight, taking on an almost saline savoriness as minerals and candied citrus nuances resonate throughout. The 2021 finishes grippy yet fresh, leaving the mouth-watering for another salty sip. This Kerner displays a fantastic amount of character and depth today but also has the balance to reward short-term cellaring. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2021 Wine Enthusiast Aromas of lemon zest, crushed rock and pine needles lift out of the glass and entice you with each sniff. The palate is fresh with hints of white flowers, kumquat and minerals. The wine finishes with grace and balance. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media A vivid mix of grapefruit and green melon gives way to zests of lemon and sweet smoke as the exotic 2019 Kerner opens in the glass. This is silky in texture, yet quickly energized by vibrant acids, as tantalizing minerality and a note of spicy nectarine adds zesty tension. The inner tropical perfumes here are unreal, lasting long through the finale, as the mouth waters, and a note of bitter citrus rind slowly fades. Wow. Enjoy this today for its intensity, or give it a year to unwind and reveal a bit more inner sweetness. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2019 Wine Advocate This is a terrific wine that delivers extreme precision and focus thanks to the clarity of its aromas. The 2019 Alto Adige Valle Isarco Kerner truly sparkles in this vintage with citrus, white peach, minty apple and crushed granite or chalk. That crystalline sharpness reminds me of the blinding white light that is reflected off the jagged, snow-capped Dolomites on a sunny winter day. This wine is a pleasure to drink. It shows lasting energy and zest. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2018 Wine Advocate Made by Hannes Baumgartner, the 2018 Alto Adige Valle Isarco Kerner opens to a fun combination of citrus and petrol-like aromas. This wine delivers a naked expression of the grape, all capped by pretty mineral nuances. There is a very mild touch of cinnamon spice on the close that comes from the fruit itself because the wine never sees oak. Some 24,000 bottles were released. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
