- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
Kerri Thompson’s Wines by KT project is beautiful in its simplicity. The range focuses on four varieties grown on two sustainably farmed vineyards in the Clare Valley. The wines tell the story of her relationship with the growers and with the land in this nook of Australia she calls home. It’s a story told with focus and precision. The wines are wildly expressive and of exceptional quality; one of the Clare Valley’s most interesting operations, to be sure.
The Melva Riesling is an homage to Kerri’s Grandmother. It carries the faintest hint of sweetness (5g/rs) and fermented wild in old oak barrels for maximum palate tension and weight.
It’s a joyous wine infused with layers from clever winemaking. It’s the signature variety of a region expressed with a little panache. And it’s just glorious to drink.
What It Tastes Like
Super perfume. Flowers, mandarin, lime. Flint and river stones washed in the rain. The palate is rich and carries a slight tug of grip yet the fruit at the centre is pristine. Hint of r/s but that lends more mouthfeel than overt sweetness. Plenty of work. Loads of charisma. Wicked drinking.

About the Producer
wines by KT
Kerri Thompson’s laser-like winemaking focus is gaining her a big reputation. Rather than spread her talents far and wide, she has zeroed in on two of her favourite vineyards in the Clare Valley and she is drilling down into them. The wines have a specificity which is refreshing, she is trying to tell the complete story of a small part of the Clare with a limited palate of four varieties - Riesling being the main focus. The wines she is producing are wonderfully detailed and of the highest class.
The Clare Valley knows what it does, and does it very, very well. Riesling and Shiraz are the rockstars of the region and with some of the most famous wines in the county coming from this small pocket of SA, the Clare’s reputation for quality only grows year on year.
Riesling is the king of white grapes. With unparalleled versatility, it rightfully carries the ‘Noble’ name tag. We make extraordinary Riesling in Australia, from far and wide. From the classic searing, razor-sharp styles in the Clare and Eden Valleys to the fragrant and enchanting wines of the Great Southern, Australian Riesling is a chameleon that can take on many forms. Sweet, steely, lean or textured, the world of Riesling is a thing of wonder that should be explored by all true lovers of wine.
