HEY TOMORROW & KOERNER BROTHERS 2022 'LIGHT RED'
Grapes have been central to the Koerner family for over forty years, with Christine and Anthony Koerner farming and selling their Gullyview Vineyard fruit in the Clare Valley. Jump forward a generation, brothers Damon and Jono have opened the winemaking story.
Having only begun their winemaking partnership in 2014, following time working in France at vineyards in Alsace, Chablis and Corsica, the brothers have quickly emerged as stars of the Australian wine scene.
They make wines of high drinkability and vibrance, achieved through their philosophy of early picking and minimal intervention winemaking.
They are winners of 2019 Young Gun of Wine.
