2022 Koerner Pigato - 17.5/20 Points - Matthew Jukes review (Matthew Jukes)
This wine is precisely the same as the Rolle above, except it spends 20 days on its skins, earning it an ‘orange wine’ classification. I know that this is a famous wine in Australia, beloved by sommeliers and critics alike, but I far prefer Rolle without the skin contact. This is because while the perfume and fruit notes are more exotic and obvious, it ends up being a flatter and more textural style, albeit with crunchy acidity tacked on the end. This takes away from the apparent flair and élan found in the raw materials.
