Tasting Notes

WA97

One of the top 2011s, the 2011 Cumulus Vineyard #5 is a similar blend to the 2010, with 42% Syrah, 32% Grenache, 16% Mourvedre, 7% Petite Sirah and 3% Touriga Nacional. There’s slightly less whole cluster inclusion here (8%), and it spent 30 months in 45% new French oak. Roughly 257 cases were made. More savory and chewy, it boasts knockouts aromas and flavors of cassis, liquid smoke, ground pepper and hints of tar to go with a full-bodied, rich, structured, yet thrillingly textured profile on the palate. It too needs short-term cellaring, and will have upward of two decade of longevity.

The Winery

Next of Kyn

Next of Kyn was introduced by the talented Manfred and Elaine Krankl in 2007 as a completely separate operation from his Sine Qua Non wines. Next of Kyn wines are sourced from their Cumulus Vineyard that is planted around their estate in Oakview. Each Next of Kyn release are sold in box set which contains three 750ml and one magnum. Production is extremely low, so getting your hands on these phenomenal bottles could be tough, but we have quite the selection!
