It’s very young and fruit-driven, a little callow perhaps, but marvellously full-flavoured and surprisingly concentrated for its lowly price. Dry underbrush, brown spices, licorice and earthy savoury aromas. An amazing bargain. Tasting Notes from Huon Hooke
Origin of Name
Kindred looks ahead to the next generation of the Sanguine family; the name itself was chosen as it represents those related by blood – a perfect “Sanguine” fit. Consider Kindred as the perfect introduction to the Sanguine Shiraz suite.
Too be advised
We utilize traditional winemaking practices such as small fermentation tanks, natural fermentation (i.e. no yeast additions) and gravity feeding. Whilst this can be quite labour intensive, we believe it ensures the preservation of natural fruit flavours and the Heathcote terrior character. As with all varieties produced at Sanguine Estate, the grapes were destemmed, lightly crushed and then naturally fermented with wild indigenous yeasts in small open fermenters. The wine is then transferred via gravity (to avoid pump shock) to predominantly French oak barriques (approximately 10% new) and left to mature for approximately 12 months.
