Lock and Worth Kerner 2022

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaUntil very recently I had no idea L&W made a Kerner. But I came across this 2022 (and a 2021) and was delighted. From a north Naramata vineyard planted in 1999, behind Nichol, this was fermented and aged in stainless, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Fragrant lime pith and peel jumps from the glass of this youthful white, followed by lemon blossoms, cold cream, apricot fuzz across a textual, creamy palate. There's an impression of sweetness from this aromatic German grape, but the wine presents and finishes dry, with a bitter lime and white pepper snap.Tasted: 16 February 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
