Alkina has caused quite a stir since their establishment in 2015 when Argentinian businessman and wine-lover Alejandro Bulgheroni bought some old-vineyard land near Greenock in the Barossa.
The Alkina estate, named after an indigenous girl's name that means 'moon' or 'moonlight', now extends over 43 hectares much of which is certified organic and/ or biodynamic. There's also a beautiful cellar door to visit.
The wines could not be more terroir-focused, with Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro and Semillon. The Alkina Kin range enables the team to do some experimental releases and to celebrate local artists on the labels.
It's an ambitious project but their early releases are wonderful. We expect much more in the future.
