About: Brothers Damon & Jono Koerner, the Young Guns of Wine 2019, first spent many years learning from their parents the art of growing top quality grapes. Their travels around Europe, visiting fellow winemakers in France and Italy, have helped them develop a preference for fresh, unoaked, lighter styles of red and Mediterranean whites. It’s these Mediterranean varieties that really stand out on their Gullyview vineyard, which has been in their family for nearly forty years. The two brothers have also pioneered the use of ceramic eggs for fermentation, and are always striving to experiment while making naturally delicious, show-stopping wines.
Light bodied cool climate Pinot. Soft silky tannins, red berries, blueberries and some earthiness hinted at. Extremely drinkable.
