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.

Vintage Overview

Like our highly successful 2012 vintage, the 2018 vintage is shaping up to be one of our exceptional vintages.  This is because the 2012 and 2018 vintages followed cooler and wetter years.  As an example the 2017 vintage had the biggest canopies and biggest crops that we have ever experienced and as there were no long heat periods or massive heat spikes during summer it meant the vines remained healthy and could carry the fruit without any trouble. Although the 2018 vintage that followed was a particularly hot and dry year, there was plenty of subsoil moisture and very healthy vines with lots of energy carried over from 2017 resulting in great yields, strong canopies and tiny grape bunches that could withstand the heat spikes.

Winemaking

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.
