Kindeli Luna Llena 2022
Luna Llena is a beautiful expression of Syrah, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Franc. The key things we love about these varietals shine through the blend. Perhaps we can attribute it to the small batch farming and Alex Craighead’s depth in winemaking. What you’ll get in your glass is both a classic and a showstopper red, that will amplify your dinner and conversation. Its dress is a hazy pale purple that indicates a lighter red. What will draw you in are its strong notes of peppers, black fruit, and earthy mushrooms and gravel. On the palate it has medium body, balanced acidity, and smooth tannins- traits that make it unquestionable to pour over and over.
Reminds us of: Chili Peppers, Blackberries, Cherries, Wet Slate, Mushroom, Woody Herbs
Serve and Pair: Serve slightly chilled, to your barkada, at a staycation. Pairs well with meaty dishes such as Kofta Balls, Beef Kaldereta, Lamb Roast with Italian herbs.

Alex Craighead is the mastermind behind Kindeli and Don Wines, both of which are run together with his partner Josefina Venturino in the Upper Moutere of Nelson, New Zealand with soils composed completely of clay.
Born in Australia, Alex started out pursuing his studies in accounting and after a wine tasting ended up studying viticulture in New Zealand followed by a journey of visiting and learning about different vineyards around the world. Alex Craighead also consults to Japanese wineries like Grape Republic. Organic grapes used in his wines are sourced from growers undergoing organic conversion which is very important for Alex. "Everyone should want to experiment with their technique, as much as possible," Alex explains. In the vineyard, there is an utmost care and importance to the health of the soil and the land in which the vines are grown. Cover crops, local trees, natural fertilizer and sheep that wander and forage the vines of any unwanted weeds are some of the things that maintain a balance and healthy ecosystem for biodiversity as well as also only choosing natural fermentation processes, no fining or filtration, the bottles are even corked by hand using Noma Corks (which are made from recycled sugarcane) ensuring an exacting process to produce pure and top quality wines that live and breathe in every tasting.
