NEAT Becomes Official Spirits Glass Sponsor for IBWSS 2017

IBWSS has chosen the NEAT glass to be the official spirits trade tasting glass because of its clear ability to enhance judging and level the competitive playing field by enhancing and intensifying spirit character aromas without the presence of nose-numbing ethanol.  NEAT is the ultimate spirits glass for all spirits from whiskey to vodka, clear or dark, including liqueurs and aperitifs.

The NEAT glass is the official spirits judging a glass of most major spirits competitions in the USA, and many abroad invented and patented by Arsilica, Inc., Las Vegas, Nevada and distributed worldwide.  Arsilica is dedicated to changing the way the world drinks, by improving alcohol beverage drinking and evaluation experiences through seamless integration of physics, chemistry, and human physiology.  Science builds a better glass.

About NEAT Glass:

The NEAT Glass: World’s first scientifically engineered, patented glass delivers flavors the distiller intended. What’s hiding in your glass? Removes nose burn to smell the flavors. Take back the decision process instead of just agreeing with the experts. It’s your nose, Taste the Truth.

In 2003, a simple glass blowing mistake created an amazing shape which displays the true expression of spirits and launched a new, scientific approach to glass design, which they call Naturally Engineered Aroma Technology (NEAT).

NEAT Glass

Studying human olfactory physiology and applying physical and chemistry science, They unlocked the hidden dimensions of distilled spirits with a glass that enhances drinking pleasure, enjoyment, and diagnostics. Nine years, fifty-two design revisions, hundreds of tastings and aroma profile studies developed NEAT, the perfect spirits glass.

Taste the Truth: Taste and aroma are true measures of a spirit’s quality.  Alcohol burn numbs the nose and overwhelms the truth, spoiling your drinking experience. Neat eliminates nose burn and numbing, enhancing ability to detect, savor, and enjoy the subtle, wonderful aromas the distiller intended.

Science Drives Design, and Form Follows Function: NEAT was tested against other spirits glasses under controlled, uniform conditions by University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV) Chemistry Department to verify results, Science built a better glass.

How to Use: Pour to max bowl diameter (1 1/2 oz), swirl, hold level, and smell at the center of the rim plane for characteristic aromas without alcohol. Breathe in slowly through mouth CLOSED, evaluate. NEAT presents character aromas without alcohol. Position nose at the rim to smell alcohol and other high-end distillates. Place nose deep inside glass for aroma profile same as with tall narrow glasses (not recommended). Adding water shuts down evaporation and results in much less aroma to savor.

Kingston Mount Benson (Limestone Coast)

Kingston_Estate_Wines

Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc

Situated at stone’s throw from Wright’s Bay, their vineyard enjoys a maritime climate to such an extent it must be protected by a network of bushes and trees. With undulating Terra Rosa soil and cooling summer sea breezes, wines from this vineyard display signature lifted aromatics and spice.

The Kingston Vineyard (Riverland)

Kingston_Estate_Wines

Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Franc

Located directly opposite the winery, this was the first broad acre vineyard that they planted their selves. Pioneering Petit Verdot as a variety uniquely suited to the Riverland’s extended hot and dry growing season, their Kingston vineyard boasts the largest single planting of this classic variety in the Southern Hemisphere.

Kingston Paringa (Riverland)

Kingston_Estate_Wines

Shiraz, Chardonnay, Cabernet, Sauvignon Blanc

Located north of the village of Paringa, this scenic vineyard is easily recognisable for its long rows of tall poplar trees which line the southern boundary. Situated high over the river Murray (which flows past less than a kilometre away), the vineyard has a good aspect and is the home to many of their single vineyard programs, including very high quality Sauvignon Blanc.

Kingston Kangara (Riverland)

Kingston_Estate_Wines

Shiraz, Colombard, Pinot Noir, Viognier

Across the Murray river from the wildlife filled Murtho Forest Reserve, this is their largest vineyard and due to the rich soil is home to their most vigorous vines. It has plantings of a range of varieties including their vibrant (single vineyard) Pinot Noir, as well as a good number of aromatic whites.

Kingstone Estate Winery

They make and mature all their wine at their state of the art winery in the township of Kingston on Murray, located in the centre of the Riverland wine region of South Australia.

Kingston_Estate_Wines

The winery was built in 1985 on the corner of the family property next to their original vineyard as well as the family home.

Today the winery can be considered two wineries in one: the original winery and the modern extension.

The original winery is where they make their small batch super premium wines giving them the flexibility and control to develop parcels of wine into exciting styles that truly reflect the varieties and regions from which they come.

Kingston_Estate_Wines

State of the art tanks and winemaking equipment enhance their ability to produce commercial and larger volume bulk wines to the highest standard.

Their efficient and sophisticated winemaking operations allow them to make wine styles at all quality levels to the specific needs of their diverse global customers.

As a winery with top tier BRC compliance and a storage capacity of 104 million litres (equivalent to 140 million bottles of wine), all of their wine is made and matured on site until dispatched to market.

Kingston Estate Wines People

Kingston_Estate_Wines

Bill Moularadellis

Managing Director

After graduating from Roseworthy with a winemaking degree in 1985, Bill was intent on setting up his own winery, which he did on his parent’s Riverland vineyard property that same year.

Bill’s winemaking skills and business acumen ensured the winery enjoyed steady growth throughout the 1980s and then when Australian wine began to grow in popularity overseas, Kingston Estate was well placed to help satisfy this new demand, with Bill jumping on a plane numerous times a year to visit key export markets.

He continues to run the winery as Managing Director and oversees winemaking as Chief Winemaker.

Bill is a past executive committee member of the South Australian Wine Industry Association, past Chairman and board member of the Riverland Wine Industry Development Council, past member of the Business Advisory Board to the Reserve Bank of Australia as well as a past non-executive board member of Wine Australia.

Bill is married to Ivanka and they have three beautiful daughters, the ‘Mo Sisters.’

Nina & Steve Moularadellis

Owners

Nina (short for Constantina) and Steve (Australian for Sarantos) both emigrated from Greece to Australia as young adults, seeking a better life in the ‘lucky country.’ They met while picking fruit in the Riverland region of South Australia, where they had both chosen to settle.

When they could afford it, they bought their own block of land on which they gradually planted fruit orchards as well as a vineyard. Nina and Steve had three children, two sons and a daughter; today they have seven grand children and both are still actively working at the winery.

Ivanka Moularadellis

Commercial Trading Manager

Born and bred in the Riverland, Ivanka started her working career with the Riverland Development Corporation and then moved to Adelaide in 1990 to undertake a Bachelor of Arts degree and a role as the Events Manager for the Lord Mayor of Adelaide. This was followed by a role as Sister Cities Program Manager for the City of Adelaide.

In 1999, Ivanka moved back to the Riverland and married Bill Moularadellis. They now have three girls Lauren, Victoria and Emma who can be regularly spotted around the family winery.

It was at that time that Ivanka started working in the family wine business in various roles including domestic sales management, export wine sales and human resources. Ivanka is now actively involved in Kingston’s leadership and commercial trading team and represents the Riverland Wine Industry Development Council on the South Australian Wine Industry Association Executive Committee

Bob Wiseman

Production and Compliance Manager

Bob graduated from Uni with an Applied Science Degree and started work with Berri Coop Winery (later to be Hardys and Constellation). Technical management opportunities led to an industry switch to the fruit juice industry and the subsequent 19 years working for Berri Ltd allowed him to gain experience in a number of roles including technical, manufacturing/production management and manufacturing software implementation.

A change of lifestyle was called for in the late 90’s with children requiring a father not to be interstate 2 weeks in 4 and so Bob left Berri Ltd for some consulting with some other management acquaintances. An opportunity came up to work with Bill in December 2000 when the short notice resignation of the incumbent Production Manager left a hole to be filled with weeks before the 2001 vintage. What started as a casual opportunity to help out for a few years has turned into a real career commitment. Bob has a high level of synergy with the Kingston Estate management philosophy and team.

Bob prides himself on providing a level of calmness and management professionalism which will stand Kingston Estate in good stead for the winery growth and development plans for the future.

Meet and Explore Kingston Estate Wines at IBWS Show. The International Bulk Wine and Spirits Show (IBWSS) is an annual trade show and conference which will give wineries, importers, supermarkets, retailers, restaurants, distilleries and other buyers a premier international platform to source bulk wine and spirits and meet private label suppliers. Book now and save on exhibitor rates.
