KT Churinga Shiraz 2013 South Australia Clare Valley

$47.95

KT Churinga Shiraz 2013. The Churinga vineyard shiraz was first planted in 1954 and this wine was lovingly created from dry grown vines planted on rich loam and slate soil, which contributes to its fine tannin structure and vibrant fruit. In the creation I’ve adopted traditional techniques of open fermentation and basket pressing. Hand picked fruit was carefully selected and fermented naturally on skins with approx 30% whole bunch fruit and a small amount of cofermented Riesling as a natural acid addition. Gentle hand plunging of the ferment and minimal working has produced a shiraz with rich fruit concentration and finely grained velvet tannins. Basket pressed, the wine was matured in 100% French oak and a mix of 3 and 4 year old French oak barriques to ensure that the fruit is the defining feature.

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 farming principles, it’s my intention to produce wines with drinkability and personality.

The Churinga vineyard was first planted in 1930 and those gnarly old Grenache vines are still producing some wonderful fruit on the property today. Consisting of Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Mataro, the majority of vines were traditionally planted on the contour in 1930 and 1954. How lucky I am to work with beautiful old vine grapes.

Owned by the Kyros family since 2003, Churinga is now managed by local winegrower Leon Schram and the site is farmed adopting sustainable management techniques, including biodynamic 500 preparation, to assist with soil and vine health.

Churinga has a rich red loam soil overlying slate and my dry grown vines are shoot thinned, hand pruned and hand picked to ensure the best possible fruit selection each season.

From this vineyard I create my individual vineyard Churinga Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon as well as my 5452 red blend. It’s a little piece of history from Watervale.
