2021 Koerner The Clare - 18.5/20 Points - Matthew Jukes review (Matthew Jukes)


I love this fabulous ‘Clare Claret’! Made from 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc, 13% Grenache, 6% Malbec, 6% Carignan and 2% Sciacarello, with a hefty dollop of 1930-planted fruit on board, this is one of the region’s most attractive young red wines, and I would love to get this bottle into the hands of every restaurateur in the UK because it is precisely the shape, style, brightness and flavour that we adore. I am not surprised that this wine is in perfect balance because the Koerners are dab hands at blending and assembling complex red wines, but the quality of fruit here, for the price, is exceptional! 

18.5/20 Points
