Expert Reviews

94 Points - Gary Walsh - The Wine FrontPowerful and throaty, churning with tannin, mocha and new leather, dried herb and floral perfume, black fruit. Oak is nutty nougat and fragrant, not overdone, but noted, finishes saline and long with sooty tannin and glimmers of red fruit. A lotta Barossa.
92 Points - Nick Butler - The Real ReviewBright purple colour with red edges. Aromatics are imposing: ripe plums, coconut oak, some raisining - old school. More freshness on the palate. A burst of sweet, ripe plums tailing into brighter raspberry acidity on the finish. It benefits from time open - air softening the wine and liberating its fruit. Cellaring recommended

How was it made?

The 2018 vintage was superb.  Winter was slightly wetter than average getting the vines off to a brilliant start leading them into Spring which was warmer and drier than average.  Rain in early December refreshed the vines and ensured they remained strong and healthy for the overall dry and hot Summer.  Autumn also remained dry with perfect Autumnal temperatures leading into harvest.  The 2018 yields are good and the quality is excellent, a classic Barossa vintage.

Who made it?

The Kalleske family have been growing grapes in the Barossa Valley since 1853 – they are known as one of the premier viticulture families in Australia, with seventh generation family members still active in the industry today. Situated near the village of Greenock in South Australia’s Barossa Valley, Kalleske occupies organic vineyard sites, growing premium fruit for their boutique range. The vineyards vary in age with oldest dating back to 1875 and the youngest being around 50 years old. Traditional winemaking techniques with biodynamically managed vineyards characterises the winemaking process. Winemaker Troy Kalleske focuses on expressing the unique characteristics of each individual vineyard site throught the range of Kalleske wines.
