The ‘Kin by Alkina’ wines celebrate our community of makers, thinkers and artists. The range allows us to explore different parts of the vineyard each year and then trial ideas and blends. It also gives us the opportunity to expand our winemaking knowledge, particularly with whole bunch levels and extended skin contact.
The artwork for some of these labels was created by Adnyamathanha artist Damien Coulthard, who has used ochre pigments to create his interpretation of the energy from the soils and rocks of Alkina (Kin Field White) and the night sky (Kin Field Red). The original paintings hang in the Tasting Room and Guesthouse.
For other Kin labels we have collaborated with creative wunderkind and graphic designer, Damian Hamilton. You’ll see these are quite a different style to Damien Coulthard’s work and with these we try to tell the story of life in the vineyard in a different way.
