Oatley Leonora’s 2020 – Wine of the Month July 2021

This vineyard was a new one for me, and a new grape variety, discovered on a recent trip to Somerset. I agree with their description of the wine:

Crisp, fresh, elegant, balanced.  Aromatic and fruity. English rose-garden scent, dry Riesling style. Great with seafood, salads and spicy dishes.

100% Kernling grape. Kernling is a Riesling crossing with a lot of Riesling character, the pink clone of better-known, white Kerner.
