Kindeli Verano 2022
This wine radiates summertime in a bottle! Playful but refined, Verano introduces itself cordially in a peachy-pink, slightly-hazy spoor of floral and earthy notes of fresh strawberries, mushroom, rose buds and red electric Kool-Aid.
This rosé field blend of spicy-fruity (Pinot Gris), aromatic (Riesling), herby (Sauvignon Blanc), clean (Chardonnay), tropical and floral (Gewürtzraminer), red fruit (Pinot Noir) and slight smokiness (Syrah) is so delectable and excitingly inviting like waking up after a nap to a majestic sun set. Succulent and so very refreshing, it would be egregious to not chug this with sprightly gusto. This bottle relishes to devour in the heat of summer feverishness with notes of bright fruits like oranges, pineapples and tart pears that bite into you just as much as you bite into this fluid amalgamation of fruity wonder. Shades on and sunscreen out! This bottle demands you get some sunshine on (but do keep this bottle shaded and well-chilled!) and enjoy this rosé 'til the sun goes down.
Reminds us of: Lychee, Rambutan, Pomelo, Four Seasons, Pear, Chamomile, Rose
Quality Time: Serve chilled to pair and share with friends on a riverside, lake or beach with lots of ihaw or bright and herby kilawin/kinilaw or sinuglaw maybe even lechon paksiw on a bed of warm rice... Try this with Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs or Fantastic Mr. Fox.

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.
