KT Churinga Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 – A truly finessed Australian red, KT Churinga Cabernet Sauvignon is the result of gently basket-pressing intensely-flavourful Clare Valley grapes and aging them in both new and old French oak barrels – a process that imparts a complex, oak-driven depth and richness to the deliciously savoury wine.

Named after KT Wines’ ‘Churinga Vineyard’ in the South Australian township of Watervale, this masterfully developed red is the passion of devoted Clare Valley winemaker Kerri Thompson.

With a powerful fruitiness to round out this incredibly balanced red wine, KT Churinga Cabernet Sauvignon is an example of truly outstanding Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignons.

g’day folks…

Welcome to Wines by KT.. I’ve been living and making wine in the Clare Valley district since 1998 and after eight years of managing historic Leasingham Wines I decided to establish my very own owned and operated wine business in 2006.

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.

Specialising in my first-love, Riesling, and inspired by lovingly grown grapes from a beautiful part of the world, I’m working to create wines that express spirit of place and enjoyment. Come up and see me some time.

The Vineyard

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.
