Summary: Kindred Spirits is a collaboration between Australian winemaker Corey Ryan and friends he has made over many years making wine in New Zealand, The Kindred Spirits Range consists of a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Central Otago Riesling, Martinborough Pinot Noir and Hawkes Bay Syrah. Each wine brings its own personality and perspective to these classic regional and varietal matches.
Winemaking: The Kindred Spirits Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from lower-yielding vineyards on the hillside slopes for greater intensity and whole bunch pressed. Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks with minimal oxygen interaction to maximise fruit expression. Following fermentation the wine is aged in tank on lees for four months with malolactic fermentation avoided.
2019 Vintage: 2019 was characterised by high sunshine and low rainfall providing perfect conditions for the grapes and the hallmarks of a great vintage. Unlike a couple of previous vintages, conditions were right and the process of picking grapes was unhurried due to threats of rainfall or vineyard disease. Wines from this vintage should be excellent across the board.
Tasting Note: A lifted and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough nose bursting with bright passionfruit, guava and citrus fruits with supportive cut grass and subtle spices. Full flavoured yet pulled tight and fine with bracing natural acidity. An excellent match to seafood particularly prawns or scallops.
