Alex Craighead Kindeli Blanco
Country: New Zealand
Grapes: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc
Alex Craighead and Josefina Venturino of Kindeli Wines are based in the rolling hills of the Upper Moutere near Nelson at the top of New Zealand's South Island where the aim to create 'energetic, precise, and supremely drinkable' natural wines. They grow organically, hand harvest their grapes and ferment with native yeasts in a combination of amphora and stainless steel before bottling without added sulphur.
A lovely skin contact blend of Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. Herbal and floral with some gooseberry from the Sauvignon and hints of lime and kerosene from the Riesling. Well textured with great acidity and some gentle funk on the finish.
