G’day folks,
It’s been a long time coming but I can happily announce that my new website is now live and kicking. If you have a chance please check out www.winesbykt.com. Here you’ll be able to keep up to date with my new releases, tasting dates around the country and what’s happening wine wise by reading my blog. It’s only fitting that a new website brings with it new wines and I’m celebrating with the release of my five new 2013 Rieslings; Peglidis, Churinga, melva, pazza and 5452.

For a VOTE of a different kind this September, ORDER your favourites through my new website and you can go in to the draw to win one of three mixed 2013 Riesling six packs. ORDERS need to be cast by Sept 30th.

Following such a dry season, the 2013 vintage was an earlier than usual, compact harvest but with fine conditions throughout and friendly warm days, our fruit was hand picked in healthy, clean condition and has produced wines of full flavour concentration with crisp, refreshing acidity. They really are lovely drinks.
For those of you familiar with my portfolio you will notice a new addition in pazza by KT. The word pazza in Italian is the feminine version of CRAZY and this is my wild fermented, unfiltered Riesling sourced from the dry grown Watervale Peglidis vineyard. This wine is oxidatively handled and fermented in a blend of stainless steel and ten year old French oak barriques for approx. three months.This dry style, with its savoury qualities, shows that Riesling can indeed come in many different shapes and guises.

From 2013, Peglidis vineyard is showing its typical fine, firm tension with delicate citrus spice, whilst Churinga vineyard has more concentrated fruit weight and lifted aromatics. melva by KT is my wild fermented, exotic expression of Riesling that spends three months in oak and 5452 by KT (sourced 100% from the Peglidis vineyard this year) is largely from the younger vines on the property. These are the Riesling vines that were meticulously grafted by Bunny and Yvonne Peglidis three years ago onto the old 1970 planted Semillon rootstocks which lie on the rich chocolate loam soil that features on this property. Grafting is a true art and Bunny is a master. As they continue to mature, I look forward to seeing how the quality of this fruit develops. The vines look fabulously healthy.

A big thanks to everyone who came to see me during my recent promotional visits to Sydney and Brisbane. It’s lovely to put faces to names. For all future tasting queries please email me: kt@winesbykt.com

Make your VOTE count folks at www.winesbykt.com

Cheers, KT x

Hiya Folks.. thanks to everyone who came along last night to Craft Wine Store in Brisbane to help me celebrate my new Riesling releases.. it was great to see you all.. Lovely to see Team Carruthers, Jocelyn Walker and Laura deLeon from past meetings coming along. Thanks all for making the effort.
I love that everyone has different favourites amongst the wines and it seems that crazy pazza by KT is gaining quite the following. 
I'll be out and about in Brisbane today and off to the Gold Coast tomorrow for the first time!.. Bring on the sunshine.

Cheers, KT x
