Tasting Notes

WA99

A wine that flirts with perfection, the 2012 Cumulus Vineyard #6 is an interesting blend of 38% Syrah, 37% Grenache, 17.4% Petite Sirah and the rest Mourvedre that saw 33 months in 54% new French oak. There’s a tiny 191 cases made, and it’s one of the most singular, exotic wines I’ve tasted. Spice, cedar, chocolate, exotic flowers and an assortment of dark fruits all emerge from this full-bodied, layered blend that hits the palate with serious richness and depth. Yet, like all truly great wines, it’s light, ethereal and never, ever heavy. There’s big structure here as well, so forget bottles for 3-4 years and enjoy over the following 15+ years.

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!
