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.
The Peglidis vineyard has been carefully tended by the same custodians for the last forty three years and is an important wine growing source for wines by KT. This dry Riesling and its intense fruit flavour, shows graceful power and is balanced with juicy acidity.
The hand picked fruit from the Peglidis vineyard, which is focused on natural farming, is my ninth release from this vineyard. With delicate floral spice and succulent, fleshy citrus fruit, this wine displays all the fine hallmarks of the Watervale region.
The vineyard was planted in '73, and has been dry-grown, 240 dozen made. This is the most potent and strongly structured of the four Rieslings I have tasted from Kerri Thompson in this vintage, and the most in need of time, however seductive the lingering aftertaste may be.

Sweet spice notes with ginger, cinnamon, lemongrass, but you get a sense of citrussy zing and a lift of blossoms too. Glassy texture, concentrated but not over the top, just the idea that grape flavour has due intensity. It’s a wine that shows tension but glides and washes over the palate with judicious citrussy-apple fruit flavour and a cut of tangy acidity. Finishes with lemon barley water sweet-sour tang. It feels pristine, beautiful, delicious. Alcohol : 12%; Price : $35; Closure : Screwcap; Drink : 2015 - 2025; Rated : 94 Points; Mike Bennie; The Wine Front
