2021 was a challenging vintage with rain throughout the harvest season. Although challenging it was not without its highlights. One key benefit of the harvest was the higher acidity in the fruit. This enabled our winemakers us to produce crisp aromatic whites and rose with soft fruit characters.
A cool climate take on of one of the worlds most renowned blends, the 2021 Kylie Masse Red has aromas of strawberry, raspberry jam, red plum, black pepper, and clove, along with subtle charred wood and vanilla from aging in oak barrels. The palate is medium bodied and mirrors the nose, but with an emphasis on red fruit and a jammy quality that is nicely contrasted against the wine’s fresh acidity. Overall, its shows excellent balance between alcohol, acidity, and tannins which are silky-smooth, making this wine very approachable and easy drinking. Perfect for sharing with friends, pairing with hearty meals, or cheering on Kylie as she competes at the Olympic games..
