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.

Brilliant intense red with purple hues in colour. On the nose, elegant ripe plum fruits combine with spicy pepper and a hint of smoky oak. On the palate, layers of dark fruits and eucalyptus spice are balanced by soft tannins and an amazing smooth finish.
Perfectly paired with barbecued foods, richly flavoured meats and game birds.
The grapes were harvested at optimum night temperatures and Baume with individual selections kept seperately throughout. Fermentation commenced at 20°C then were all allowed to peak at 28 - 29°C and conducted in small static fermenters before being drained and pressed from skins then allowed to finish alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. Maturation was in French and American oak.

Jancisrobinson.com, 2023, 15/20: "Smells of blackcurrant jam. Tasted alongside the much-more-expensive DR3 x St Hugo Shirazes, this was a relief. Simple, fruity, honest and not over-extracted or over-made."
