Left Foot Charley 2017 Kerner
I don't typically use whimsical descriptors, but this wine smells like a sunny summer day. It's floral and peachy and even has a hint of fresh spearmint on the nose. It's almost like a less-obnoxious muscat in that way.
The palate shows similar flavors, all with a gritty, citrusy acidity that perfectly frames the peach, citrus and even faintly tropical flavors. There is a certain power in its juiciness that really lengthens the finish that ends on a distinct note of grapefruit zest.
Bright and refreshing right out of the refrigerator, let this one warm up a bit to enjoy its full impact. It makes a real case for more kerner in Michigan and similar climes.
