Wines by KT are small, lovingly cared for parcels of fruit that have traditional techniques used in their creation. I’m passionate about the township of Watervale 5452 and am working with dry grown, sustainably farmed vineyards in the area. With gentle care from grapegrower to winemaker, working with sustainable principles, it’s my intention to produce wines with drinkability and personality.
2016 WOW Fortified Riesling Muscat
I’ve adopted traditional techniques of open fermentation, basket pressing, and fortification with a special spirit blend to create this wine. Gentle hand-plunging of the ferment and minimal working has produced a Riesling Muscat with lifted aromatics of orange peel and Turkish delight.
These Watervale vineyards have a rich red loam soil overlying slate and the dry grown vines are shoot thinned, hand pruned, and handpicked to ensure the best possible fruit selection each season.
