Kenzie Wines are the new project by Kiwi winemaker Dave Mackintosh, who has returned to New Zealand after years in Australia producing the well-known Arfion and Smokestack Lightning wines. He is based in Hawke's Bay where he is sourcing fruit from various organic vineyards. We are showcasing his wines that come from BioGro certified organic vineyards. 

From Dave:

"Skin Contact Gewurztraminer

Smokestack Lightning is an early 50’s Delta Blues track originally played by Howlin’ Wolf.  It’s an edgy song and genre that uses minimal input to create raw expressions.

We like this kind of creativity. It’s easy to understand, transparent and endearing. We are inspired by it and would love to emulate the footsteps of these characters.  

Smokestack Lightning explores white skin contact fermentation (orange wine) from grapes grown on stunning Hawke’s Bay soils. Sympathetically, this wine walks a tightrope between raw vineyard expressions, vintage and style.

Orange fruits, savoury, spice, florals and ginger.

This fresh aromatic precedes a gentle and dry mouthfeel which flows across the palate. A light tannin/acid grip adds to the savoury backbone of this wine as it finishes with a slight grapefruit bitterness."
