Expert Reviews

94 Points - Gary Walsh - The Wine FrontDried mint, dried cranberry, raspberry, sage and smoke. Bold, so much red fruit, sage and fat ripe tannin, what a mouth-filler, with plum, sage, smoke and all the things. Barossa writ large. If you like em big, yeah, then this is it.

How's it taste?

Instantly exuding its varietal brightness, there are aromas of rose, musk, raspberry, choc mint and licorice. These inviting aromatics lead to a medium-full bodied palate. Juicy red berry fruits dominate along with fresh plum and crunchy blackberry. Natural tannins are evident adding structure but are extremely fine and well integrated.

How was it made?

Following hand picking on April 12th, grapes were destemmed into an open-top fermenter. The must was fermented using native yeast and the skins were entirely submerged for gentle flavour and colour extraction for the 14 day fermentation. The must was then traditionally pressed and filled to barrel. The wine was matured in seasoned American and French oak hogsheads for twelve months prior to bottling.

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.
