Vintage Notes: 2016 presents the same basic architecture of 2015, with all the proportions a bit finer. The wines are bouncier and airier, the acids razor-sharp and the fruit simply saturating.
Wine Notes: Kern is named for the person who cleared this site in the early 20th century. Kern extends from the top to the bottom of the vineyard, thus one has a wine that is very complete. It shows some of the power of the Unterstenberg with some of the tension of the Stirn. Enjoy notes of kiwi, passion fruit, white grapefruit zest, kumquat, green herbs, salinity, and wet stone.
