100% Kerner (A.K.A. Weißer Herold) from the revered Fechner Bros’ vineyard in the Northern Eden Valley. The Kerner grape is a 1929 cross-breed of Riesling and Vernatsch. Graeme and Michael Fechner brought cuttings to their Eden Valley vineyard in 2001 following a research trip to Germany.

In the last few years we have incorporated the Fechner Bros’ Kerner into our aromatic blend “Düfte Punkt”, cofermenting it with Riesling and Gewürztraminer from the same vineyard. “Kontrapunkt” however is the first wine we have made solely out of Kerner grapes and is Australia’s (and the Southern Hemisphere's) only 100% varietal Kerner!
