Notes from OM Wines:

"Franz Gojer is part of a group of fine small producers from the Alto Adige that share a philosophy of winemaking: very expressive, very typical, very well-made wines.

Gojer's estate, Glögglhof, is right in the middle of the St. Magdalena hill - a perfect amphitheater just North-East of the city of Bolzano. Franz's son Florian did an apprenticeship with Jim Clendenen in Santa Barbara and is now working with his father at Glögglhof. Franz and Florian bought a high-altitude vineyard (600m/2,000 feet above sea-level) at Karneid on the other side of the valley from their winery, where they have planted Weissburgunder, Kerner and Sauvignon.

Kerner is a cross between Riesling and Schiava. Gojer’s Kerner is very aromatic, with a distinctive pear-drop nose, and flower notes reminiscent of Riesling. Very fresh acidity, bone dry."
