2022 Kalleske Clarry’s GSM
A certified organic and biodynamic blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. The oldest Grenache block dates back to the 1940’s with remaining vines varying in age up to fifty years old. In order to preserve the fresh fruit flavours ageing takes place only in very old oak hogsheads for a period of 6 months.
Very deep black dark red colour with a dark red hue. Engulfing the nostrils are heady scents of dark raspberry, plum and liquorice are complimented by hints of dried herbs and vanilla spice. Rich, plump and juicy the palate is awash with dark raspberry, ripe dark cherry, plum, blueberry and liquorice fruits. Vanillin spice and traces of earth lie underneath. Lush and opulent it has velvet smooth tannins and finishes with a long flurry of super succulent fruit.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
The Kalleske Clarry's GSM has always impressed for its density of fruit, and the '22 release is no different. Deeply coloured with deep plum, raspberry and boysenberry fruit tones, plenty of spice and hints of gingerbread, violets, wild strawberries, red licorice, ironstone-flecked earth and mocha notes. Lovely pure fruit flow with plenty of texture, gentle powdery tannins and a finish packed with fruit and layered spice. Drink by 2030.
