Lime Kiln Red 2017

Lime Kiln Red is a new medium-bodied blend that’s all about deliciousness and drinkability. With such a collection of interesting varieties in the vineyard and winery, new blending trials are irresistible fun.

Shiraz leads the way in this blend, with pretty spiced plum fruit, while mondeuse brings some juicy black fruits and touriga contributes lovely mid-palate mouthfeel. This is a fresh, bright and juicy wine with a bit of crunch to the finish.

And the name? A 1912 map of the district showed a ‘Lime Kiln Block’ near the current vineyard site, presumably burning limestone similar to that in the vineyard to make builder’s lime.
