The fruit for this Shiraz is sourced from Kalleske’s certified organic Moppa vineyard with grapes coming from 9 different blocks, the oldest of which was planted in 1961. Troy Kalleske reports that the 2019 vintage was a stunning one for quality, “It was a warm and extremely dry growing season with rainfall down significantly (39%), making it one of the driest years in the past century. Summer was 3 degrees warmer than average. Yields were impacted by the dry season, leading to smaller berries and bunches. Importantly quality is brilliant producing richly flavoured, intense wines.”
Small dollops of Petit Verdot (5%) and Viognier (2%) were included in the blend to provide added complexity and give the wine a contemporary edge. Maturation took place in a combination of approximately 25% new French, American and Hungarian oak hogsheads for 13 months.
A rich, palate staining Barossa Shiraz that has a long blockbuster finish.
Impenetrable midnight black in colour with a very deep dark red black hue. Potent liquorice, black cherry and dark plum aromatics leap from the glass with toasty vanillin oak, fennel and spice ensuing. Rich, full bodied and possessing a dense, lavish textural feel, the palate is laden with plush dark plum, liquorice and blackberry fruits which oversee a background of subtlety toasted vanillin oak, fennel and spicy pepper. Magnificent concentration and power with the decadent black fruits backed by sturdy yet velvet like tannins and a youthful freshness. Some lingering mocha nuances make an appearance on the long bountiful finish.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
