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.
Peglidis Watervale Riesling 2021
This dry Riesling and its intense fruit flavour, shows graceful power and is balanced with juicy acidity. The hand-picked fruit from the Peglidis vineyard, which is focused on natural farming, is my sixteenth release from this vineyard.
With delicate floral spice and succulent and racy citrus fruit, this wine displays all the fine hallmarks of the Watervale region. Our hand picking and careful bunch selection from the 2021 vintage has produced great reward. Sealed with a screwcap to ensure integrity of product, you can be confident that this wine will continue to reward you with careful cellaring
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 over limestone, the soil has great water holding capacity which ensures healthy vine canopy as fruit protection. This all makes for excellent condition, healthy grapes.
