Kindeli Blanco 2020 - Alex Craighead Wines
Ultra-drinkable tropical tasting natural wine from an ultra-sustainable producer. Alex Craighead is causing some hype in the natural wine game lately and this Kindeli Blanco (white wine) is no exception.
A banging natural blend of 60% Riesling and 40% Sauvignon Blanc made without any filtration or added sulphur. 5% was fermented carbonically, 15% was destemmed and fermented on skins, the rest was pressed into neutral oak and stainless steel.
Kiwi raised winemaker Alex Craighead founded the Kindeli Wines label alongside his partner Josefina Venturino. Drawn to low intervention winemaking, there wasn't a lot on offer in New Zealand, so they began to experiment with zero sulphur wines in 2013.
They turned this side-hobby into a business, buying an existing organic winery and vineyard on New Zealand’s South Island in 2016. They have been focused on ensuring maximal biodiversity, using cover crops, natural fertilisers, and allowing sheep and cows to graze the plants surrounding the vines.
Craighead’s winemaking process is an exacting one and includes loads of innovative measures to prevent nasty microorganisms from spoiling the wine but don't involve chemicals and additives that compromise character and taste. The finished wines are not fined or filtered, and are corked by hand using Noma Corks (which are made from recycled sugarcane and are carbon neutral). Both the red and white Kindeli wines are really “living” wines and will evolve from every tasting.
