Alkina was established in 2015 when Argentinian vintner Alejandro Bulgheroni purchased a 60 hectare farm near Greenock in the North Western corner of the Barossa Valley.
With 70 year old vines and 170 year old stone buildings in need of repair, Amelia Nolan was tasked with bringing new life to the old bones of the farm. With the guidance of acclaimed winemaker Alberto Antonini, terroir expert Pedro Parra and a strong local team, Alkina is now a magical place with terroir winegrowing and regenerative farming at its heart.

2020 Kin Grenache

Following the theme of previous years, 2020 was a low yielding vintage of excellent quality. Yields were at least 50% down on the long term average. Winter and spring saw lower than average rainfall with some particularly temperamental weather experienced in spring. December and January were hot and dry, but February provided much needed relief allowing gentle, slower ripening before vintage. Fruit came from blocks 18 and 22, both planted in 2016. Block 18 is on a schist base with some limestone, while Block 22 has bush vines planted on the contours. It’s very rocky (schist and quartzite) with limited topsoil. 100% Grenache, NASAA certified organic and biodynamic. Fruit was hand picked and then fermented as 100% whole bunches in three concrete tulips.One of these was left on skins for 4 months. Components were matured in concrete before being bottled in Oct 2020.
