Kingston Estate

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.

Tasting Notes

Petit Verdot is a unique red variety that thrives in the warmer regions of Australia and in particular the Riverland area of South Australia. Deep crimson in colour with a purple hue. Aromas of dark ripe berries with pepper spice and a hint of fruitcake and sweet vanilla oak. On the pallet flavours of ripe plum and mulberry fruit, dashes of leather and vanilla oak lead to a lingering fruit and spice finish.

Food Matches

This wine has the versatility to complement almost any dining situation. Try with rare beef, duck confit or as an accompaniment to mature cheddar.
