The Kin Grenache feels energetic and floral, but give it time and red fruit, blood orange and cardamon will present. A patch of vines on limestone provides vibrancy and definition, necessary for the wine’s drive, with flesh and power from Blocks 22 on clay and 18 on schist. The cool 2023 season has delivered a wine of elegance, with exceptional fine tannin.  Fruit for the 2023 Grenache is made up of three blocks. Block 22, planted to bush vines in 2016, is located on the east to west ridge of the property, making up 42% of the wine. Picked in two parcels; the limestone component on 18 March and the clay component, a week later. Block 18, picked 17 March, from vines on clay and schist makes up 50% of the wine, with the remainder from Block 25.

There is quite a bit of buzz around for Alkina Wines. It's all about good farming and detail. It's like bonsai winemaking, three blocks of grenache on the same property, two (clay and schist) provide the flesh and power, the other, off limestone, the drive. The vinous valence here is undeniable. Spacious and filigreed with pristine red fruits, gingerbread, amaro herbs, blossom and exotic spice. Just beautifully composed with tension and transparency.

Ancient stones and soils, organic and biodynamic viticulture, small scale winemaking and the creation of unique micro-terroir wines, grown and made on our estate in the Western Barossa ranges of the Barossa Valley.
