01.26.2015  Off The Beaten Path Varietals: Kerner

Developed in 1929 in Lauffen, Germany by German grape breeder August Herold, Kerner has quickly become a popular varietal throughout Germany, Austria, and parts of Northern Italy. Herold crossed the varietals of Trollinger (also known as Schiava Grigia or Grauvernatsch depending on what part of the world you’re in; photo: Castelfeder 2014 Vernatsch harvest) with the classic Riesling grape.

Herold named his invented varietal after the poet Justinias Kerner, known for composing classic German drinking songs. Released for general cultivation in 1969, Kerner is one of the youngest commercially available varietals. It was firstly introduced to Germany, followed by Austria, Switzerland, and Italy (where it was introduced in the early 1970's). It’s now planted throughout the world in such places as: South Africa, British Columbia, England, and Michigan.

L'Ecole 2010 Apogee (Walla Walla) Reg $56.99 | Mixed Case $45.59 ~  This top wine scored 94 points from Wine Enthusiast Magazine: “A five-grape Bordeaux-style blend from the estate vineyard, this has lovely aromatics, as well as firm yet supple tannins. The black fruits are dotted with details of licorice, black tea and coffee. It’s smooth and balanced through the lengthy finish, and continues to improve overnight, suggesting it also has serious aging potential. Cellar Selection.” – Paul Gregutt
