Koerner Vivian Red Blend 2020


| /

Red wine indeed, made from 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Sangiovese & 2% Sciaccarello. Vivian the name of the vineyard and Vivian. A wonderful unisex name perhaps drifting into obscurity.

Destemmed retaining 50% whole berries with no whole bunch, Natural ferment in open top steel fermenters, hand plunged twice daily remaining on skins for 3 weeks. Aged in a French Demi-muid for 10 months, then racked to steel for 2 months.

A medium weight red, think a modern styled claret, blue & red fruits meet pepper-clove spice with a cabernet herbal hint, gamey meat overtones all finishing with light fluffy tannins and a lively freshness. Best Cellars
