  • TASTING NOTE: “Effusive nose of perfectly ripe plums and wild blackberries with a hint of something exotic. The well-crafted tannins are well matched with the ripe fruit and freshness. This only needs a little more time for all of this to come together beautifully. Excellent energy and length. Drinkable now, but best from 2024.” 94 Points - JamesSuckling.com
  • ABOUT THE WINE: A single vineyard wine from two distinct plots - polygon 10 (limestone soils) makes up 83% of the fruit used and polygon 1 (schist soil) makes up the balance. The wines are fermented separately and blended before being sent to barrel. Indigenous yeast ferment and 60% whole bunches in a concrete tulip. Basket pressed into neutral large format oak for five months of ageing. 
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: The farm at Alkina was established in 2015 when Argentinian vintner, Alejandro Bulgheroni purchased a property near Greenock in the Barossa Valley with a vineyard planted in the 1950s and old stone buildings built in the 1850s. Together with local winegrower, Amelia Nolan, they both loved the rolling hills and the promise of the geology that lay beneath, as well as the area of old Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro and Semillon vines that we now call the Old Quarter. They farm 43 hectares of organically farmed vines with younger plantings accompanying the old, still focusing on the heritage varieties that have found their natural home in the region. The vineyard has been extensively mapped by soil type, with the aim to produce true terroir driven wines. 

    The winery is equipped with tulip shaped concrete fermenters and clay amphorae from Italy, a qvevri from Georgia and small concrete eggs from France. A small amount of larger and older oak barrels is also used. All processes in the winery are designed to protect the integrity of the fruit and it's coil source. Winemaking is pared back so that the imprint of the winemaker is barely perceptible. The winery is equipped with tulip shaped concrete fermenters and clay amphorae from Italy, a qvevri from Georgia and small concrete eggs from France. A small amount of larger and older oak barrels is also used. They consider the six enemies of terroir wine to be: over-ripening, over-extraction, invasive oak, synthetic chemicals, the winemaker’s ego and market-led winemaking.
