Description

KT 5452 Grenache Mataro 2017

KT 5452 Grenache Mataro 2017 is a 75/25% split,with the grenache coming off dry-grown bushvines planted in the 1930s, 50% whole bunches in the ferment with wild yeast and no new oak. The result is an immediately drinkable spicy, savoury and pleasing red. Tannins are so soft and supple bolstered by some pomegranate tang and acidity.

This wine has been produced using traditional techniques of open fermentation and basket pressing. Hand picked fruit was carefully selected from the 1930s planted dry grown grenache bush vines and fermented naturally on skins in picking bins. Gentle hand plunging of the individual ferments and minimal working has produced a vibrant wine with brooding, spicy fruit concentration and supple velvet tannins. Basket pressed, the wine was matured both in tank and in a percentage of French oak and mainly 2 & 3 year old French oak barriques to ensure that the fruit is the defining feature. 2016 5452 grenache mataro is 60% grenache and 40% mataro.

Philosophy of KT

The focus of Wines by KT is creating individual vineyard wines from the sustainably cared for Peglidis and Churinga vineyards, in Watervale, South Australia. It was these vineyards that I selected as the most exciting from my winemaking experience at Leasingham – now providing the heart of all my single vineyard wines – Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Tempranillo.

Wines by KT is my privately owned and operated small wine company based in the Watervale district of the Clare Valley in South Australia, specialising in Riesling and also creating Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Tempranillo.

Wines by KT are made from small, lovingly cared for parcels of fruit from dry grown, sustainably farmed vineyards in the 5452 area and have traditional techniques used in their creation.
