Kanta

Basic Info

The future of Riesling...Egon Muller + Adelaide Hills = Kicks Lots of Ass... The ‘flying winemaker’ concept isn’t new, but the coup of having one of Germany’s Kings of Riesling, Egon Müller come all the way to Adelaide to make a dry white wine is not to be taken lightly. Now in its sixth vintage, the wine shows more focus and structure than most Australian Riesling. Maybe it’s the old world winemaking techniques like cold maceration, natural ferment and long lees contact. Maybe it’s the purity of the Adelaide Hills fruit... in any case, it’s a brilliant wine. Since its inception in 2005 we have proudly watched Kanta come of age. The wine is clearly getting better and better as Egon is gaining a greater understanding of the Adelaide Hills’ fruit and climate. He believes the key to Australian fruit is in the skins, as he has noticed much thicker skins than the fruit he works with in Germany.
