Kingston Estates was established by the Moularadellis family. The winery was built in 1985 on the corner of the family property next to the original vineyard as well as the family home. Today the winery can be considered two wineries in one: the original winery and the modern extension.
The original winery is where they make their small batch super premium wines giving them the flexibility and control to develop parcels of wine into exciting styles that truly reflect the varieties and regions from which they come. State of the art tanks and winemaking equipment enhance their ability to produce commercial and larger volume wines to the highest standard.
Deep rich red in colour with a bouquet of violets, fruitcake, leather, dusty cedar and cigar box. Violets and dark fruit on the palate with flavours of plums, prunes, dark chocolate and coffee.
This wine has the versatility to complement almost any dining situation. Try with rare beef, duck confit or as an accompaniment to mature cheddar.
The fruit was fermented in 20t static fermenters and pumped over 3 times per day for the first 4 days. Fement temperatures were allowed to peak at 25 - 27°C. The wine was drained off to finish fermentation in new American and French oak barrels. Only the light pressings were combined with the free run juice. The wines were left to settle for 7-14 days and then racked in American and French oak barrels for 18 months maturation.
