The Wine Selections
One of the fascinating aspects of making wine is knowing that it will be enjoyed in a singular moment in time – whether it’s upon release or years later. Our wines are crafted to be enjoyed anywhere on their time trajectory yet with the intention of aging, which means that from harvest to bottling we’re focused on ensuring that for each wine, its flavors, acid, tannin, and alcohol are in balance for the long haul. Time and again Kerr wines have proven that if you have the patience, you’ll be rewarded; however, we know that sometimes it’s too difficult to resist the temptation to open that bottle! With that in mind, we’ve selected two wines that are showing beautifully at this particular moment in time.
2019 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
100% Chardonnay, UV and Rued Vineyard
Striking notes of vanilla bean, sage, Asian pear, crushed white stones, and pastry flour, with a fantastic weight. The palate opens up to citrus blossom, honey, almond, fresh fruit, and flowers, with a lovely minerality on the long finish. Great freshness, eureka lemon, vibrant acidity, and a nice length. This wine is absolutely stunning right now! Best served at cellar temperature (55F), and allowed to open approximately 30 minutes before enjoying. Pair with lemon garlic whole roasted chicken or your favorite aged goat’s milk cheese.
2019 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
100% Pinot Noir, Silver Eagle Vineyard
Beautiful, pure fruit aromatics of black raspberry, blueberry, and red currant are highlighted by savory characters of juniper berry, Darjeeling tea, laurel, and forest on the nose. A lively palate with notes of violet, potpourri, and candied orange peel are complemented by gravely minerality and fine tannin, followed by a finish of great length and purity. Drinking beautifully right now and will continue to develop over the next 5-8 years. Enjoy with duck breast and all the mushrooms you can get your hands on!
