KT 5452 shiraz
Really attractive wafts of mulberry and blackberry.
A fruit-forward wine. Vibrant, beautifully balanced with delicately floral with loads of bright red cherry and denser plum and mulberry, it backs all this up with cinnamon and aniseed , vanilla and clove. The silky tannins are dense and powerful.
All the wines by KT are made from small, lovingly cared for parcels of fruit from dry grown, organically or biodynamically farmed vineyards in the 5452 area and have traditional techniques used in their creation.
Basket pressed, the wine was matured in 100% French oak and mainly 3 and 4-year-old French oak barriques to ensure that the fruit is the defining feature. The 2018 vintage 5452 is 100% shiraz that uses 1970’s and 1950’s contour planted Shiraz vine in red loam over limestone & slate over clay.
