Kindeli Luna Nueva 2022
Luna Nueva is a bright and light blend of Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay. One night of skin-contact gave this wine a beautiful light peach tinge. On the nose, it starts off with the smell of fallen immature mangoes. Let it breathe and the aroma will grow on you. On the palate, it has structure, but the tannins are mild and barely noticeable. It's saline, zippy, and slightly savory with notes of pear, apple juice, parsley, and lime peel. With all the Kindeli wines, it's recommended that you drink them with kindred spirits and if you're alone, by nature. The experience of this wine honors new beginnings. Why not have it on the New Moon to mark the cosmic reset?
Reminds us of: Mango, Lime, Black Currant, Pear, Citrus, Apple Juice, Green herbs
Serve and Pair: Serve lightly chilled, to friends and family at an outdoor lunch. Its saline and bright flavors would pair well with light seafood dishes such as Linguine alle Vongole, Moules-frites, and Roasted Branzino.

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.
