Weingut Stefan Meyer - Kerner Feinherb 2019
The Meyer family has lived in Rhodt, a village in the Pfalz region of Germany, since the 1700's. However, it wasn't until 1950 that Karl Hermann Meyer founded the family winery and began bottling his own wine. Today, Stefan Meyer is the third generation to run this 16 hectare estate. Stefan fully respects and continues what he calls the "powerful tradition" his father and grandfather created in the winery, while also embracing innovation and modernization. The Meyer vineyards are located in Rhodt unter Reitburg, a village situated next to the Palatinate Forest. All work in the vineyard is organic (the estate is working toward certification through Ecovin), and all Stefan's wines are spontaneously fermented for maximum complexity.
Meyer's 100% Kerner is crafted from 35 year old vines planted on loam and clay soils. All fruit is hand-harvested and fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel. Light gold in the glass with entrancing aromas of candied lime, sherbert, apricot and almond. The palate is sleek and racy, impeccably balanced with sugar and acidity, leading to a long, zesty finish. Enjoy with assorted cheeses, fish or vegetable dishes.
