Hiya folks.. it's all about grapes right now and I couldn't be happier.. with only a couple of blocks of Riesling left to pick for my 5452 Riesling it's been a busy couple of weeks.. chemistry looks fabulous with lovely natural acid and flavours are concentrated.. this gorgeous start to Autumn has been just what we needed to help finish off the season...

When time permits I will post some vintage shots but for those on social media make sure you check out my Wines by KT facebook page and Instagram account for daily updates.. 

Make sure you put the Clare Valley Gourmet weekend dates in your diary and come along and be a part of a fun and educational weekend - 19th/20th/21st May.. See you up here..

Will keep you posted..

Cheers, KT x

Happy New Year…

Posted by Kerri on January 9 2017 in: Churinga Vineyard: Peglidis Vineyard: Riesling: Specials & New Release Wines: Stockists: Viticulture: Wine Education

Happy New Year everyone... if, like me, you've returned to work today resembling a Christmas ham, then you may have been a little slower on your feet than usual.. I've enjoyed a fun filled, lovely festive season with my family where we've opened some lovely bottles and shared some great meals and I'm now really excited to get back in to the winery and prepare for the new harvest...
Clare Valley has experienced higher than average rain fall over the growing period and so I'm looking forward to watching my two dry grown, old vineyards (who've not enjoyed this amount of rain in decades) progress through the season and produce some specatacular fruit. Fingers crossed the remainder of the season is successful for everyone.
Thanks to everyone who has shown interest in my cellar door opening times and please note I'll be back open for the Easter weekend and further opening dates will be posted in due course. But please remember for those of you keen to taste the wines before Easter and would like to make an appointment please contact me kt@winesbykt.com

See you soon.. Cheers, KT
