Alongside his partner Josefina Venturino, Craighead founded two labels – DON Wines and Kindeli Wines – in Martinborough in 2014. Now based in Nelson’s Moutere Valley, most of the fruit used in his Kindeli range is organically and locally grown on parcels of land that he either owns or leases. Craighead uses only indigenous yeasts, and every bottle is unfined and unfiltered, and made without added sulphur.

Forest floor nose with inflections of cherry wood. The wine has a crisp, glass shard texture, loaded with succulent Pinot Noir cherry fruit, sleek spice and bright zesty acidity. A mouthwatering, drawn out finish. Incredible drinkability.
