Kalleske Greenock Shiraz 2018 (Barossa Valley)

Tasting Notes
Kalleske's 2018 Greenock Shiraz is dark purple-black in hue, with an expressive aroma of plum pudding, rose florals, milk chocolate, marinated olives, cinnamon spice and some toasty oak. The palate is rich & full-bodied, exhibiting classic Greenock Shiraz from a superb vintage. 2018 has a perfect combination of ripe black fruits together with rustic spice. Oak is finely integrated adding a supporting role to the primary fruit. The tannins are robust but being natural they are perfectly unified adding solid engaging structure. With plenty of length to the finish it completes a very complex, well-balanced wine. Whilst the Greenock is a complex Barossa Shiraz, it is refined and classy with a long cellaring potential.

"A splendid pedigree, if you consider our reviews to be a good form guide.
Powerful 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."

Greenock Shiraz is a single vineyard wine produced from low yielding Shiraz vines on the Kalleske estate at Greenock, in the North-Western Barossa Valley. Cuttings for these vines originate from a vineyard planted on the property in the late 1800s. Today, sixth and seventh generation family members meticulously tend the vines. Traditional winemaking and maturation in American and French oak hogsheads has ensured a complex, full-bodied Shiraz which will reward long term cellaring. Greenock Shiraz is a true family estate wine - grown, vintaged and matured on the Kalleske estate.

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.

Kalleske Greenock Shiraz is sourced from a single vineyard, located on the Western edge of the Greenock Creek in the Northern Barossa Valley. The vineyard consists of shallow, sandy loam soil over superb deep red clay and limestone, providing ideal conditions for Shiraz vines.

The grapes were harvested in three separate lots from March 16th to March 19th from a single vineyard, the “Greenock” block. After picking, the grapes were destemmed into open top fermenters. They were fermented warm with hand pump-overs twice a day for 7-9 days on skins prior to pressing. After pressing off skins the wines were filled to a mix of 35% new and the balance used American and French oak hogsheads. The wines completed primary fermentation and underwent natural malolactic fermentation in barrel. The wine was matured in barrel for fourteen months prior to bottling.

Kalleske wines are certified organic and biodynamic, estate grown and vinified with traditional minimalist winemaking techniques used to fully capture the essence of the vineyard allowing genuine handmade estate wines to be produced. No additives or fining agents are used in the winemaking process ensuring all wines are vegan friendly. Winery Notes
