YARRA VALLEY, VIC – STUART DUDINE
Stuart Dudine created Alkimi Wines out of a quest to sculpt wine by choosing parcels of grapes which reflect his winemaking philosophy. In his words; 'To find vineyard parcels that perform exceptionally well where their roots lay, year in and year out. No matter the season, wet or dry, cold or hot.'
Stuart’s love and passion of the Rhone sprung from his time at Henschke, South Australia, where he experienced the Rhone varieties and qualities of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre displayed by Australian grown grapes yet handled with the finesse of the old world winemaking of France.
