Kindeli Tinto 2022
Tinto, at first smell might not be your cup of tea. It's real funky on the nose with notes of barnyard, canned meat, and rubber. Try not to be intimidated, but instead intrigued by this smokey Pinot Noir.
It has a dark mood, brooding by the corner lamp of a café in a pale garnet shirt, black trench coat and printed socks in different shades of violet. The server asks for their order, and they say they want something medium roast, for its fruity notes. But they'd also like a corned beef and mushroom quiche. So they're a savory type with refined taste. They bring out a pocket book. It's Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra. An hour passes by and you don't notice them leave, but on the table underneath their empty plate is a generous tip.
This red, once you taste it, is just irresistible with its juicy red fruits, balanced acidity and savory notes. It will draw you in almost like how The Addams Family does to everyone. It's dark mooded but it's light, and easy to get comfortable with.
Reminds us of: Smoke, Earth, Mushroom, Strawberry, Plum, Umami, Persimmon
Serve and Pair: Serve slightly chilled, to someone who's a good listener, paired with a nice handcrafted dinner of steak, pasta, or burgers. Goes perfectly with dishes featuring smoked meats, ragout, hard cheese, and mushrooms.

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.
