Light straw-yellow colour. The bouquet is straw-like, dried herbs and dried flowers, with a little toast starting up already. The taste is soft and less-dry than the other KT rieslings, but certainly not sweet enough to be classed as a half-dry or off-dry style. Lovely drinking. Drink: 2017-2026 (Oct17)

Huon Hooke,

Named after KT's Grandma, Melva is a wild fermented Riesling that is inspired by the exotic off dry wine styles of the world. Created from the Peglidis vineyard, the hand picked fruit is handled oxidatively in the winery and is fermented 100% with indigenous yeast in twelve year old French oak barriques and left to sit on lees in oak for 3 months with regular stirring.
