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.
2022 5452 Watervale Riesling
Gathering fruits from vineyards in the surrounding Watervale area, including the Peglidis vineyard, this Riesling is a unique blend that is a true celebration of the region. This dry Riesling and its zesty fruit flavour, shows varietal citrus and punchy fruit characters with a crisp finish.
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 soil over limestone, the soil has great water holding capacity to ensure healthy vine canopy as fruit protection. This all makes for grapes in excellent condition and health.
