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.
Seed Melva Riesling Gin
Our Clare Valley Riesling Gin is a celebration of friendship and is a collaboration between Clare Valley Distillery and Wines by KT. We double-distilled some Melva by KT Watervale Riesling from barrel along with botanicals including juniper, locally grown quince, and mandarin. The fragrance, exotic perfume, and slippery texture of Melva Watervale Riesling translate beautifully into this delicious gin. Only 500 bottles were produced from vintage 2020.
The Peglidis vineyard has been carefully tended by the same custodians for the last forty-nine years and is an important wine growing source for wines by KT.
With its chocolate loam soil over limestone, the soil has great water holding capacity to ensure a healthy vine canopy as fruit protection. This all makes for grapes in excellent condition and health.
