About

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.
