Abbazia di Novacella Praepositus Kerner 2021

This wine knows no boundaries. It is at once immediately delicious, exciting and interesting but also is still holding back, daring you to see what some age will do. Today, the wine is a cornucopia of Meyer lemon, nectarine, alpine flowers, fresh grass and pine, all brought together by a minerality that won't let you forget it. The palate is rich with fresh and baked peaches, kissed with sweet spices and lemongrass. Citrus oils and wet gravel add to the wine on the bright and vibrant finish. Drink now-2033.
The 2021 Kerner Praepositus is understated in the glass, wafting up with candied lime and tropical melon notes. This is silky in texture with a building mineral tension that adds a savory flair. Young peach and nectarine hints are left lingering as the 2021 finishes incredibly fresh yet a bit short.
