Kalleske Barossa Valley Moppa Shiraz 2019
The 2019 vintage release of the Moppa Shiraz from Kalleske winery in the Barossa Valley is a deep purple-red colour. With aromatics that are intense and bright. Drifting from the glass are garden flowers, cherry, blueberry, clove spice and a hint of fruit cake. The palate is full-bodied with prevailing juicy red and black fruits. It’s extremely polished with subtle oak effortlessly blending with the rich fruits adding complexity. The tannins are perfectly integrated and being entirely natural they add fine structure without imposing. The balance of this wine is impeccable. It is rich and flavoursome with an elongated finish. Kalleske Moppa 2019 is an expressive and opulent Shiraz that can be enjoyed now or will cellar well in the medium to long term.
"The kind of stuff South Australian kids are weaned on.
Chocolatey, rich, dense and quilt-like red of deep flavour, ripe/sweet fruit, lavish sweet spice, warmth and generosity. All smooth, satiny, a faint smudge of tannin the only ruffle in the mellifluous flow. Speaks with a broad, ocker accent, that’s for sure. Generosity. Heartland stuff."

Kalleske Moppa is predominantly Shiraz with a trace of Petit Verdot and Viognier blended in for added complexity. Grapes are from ten different blocks on the Kalleske’s organic farm, with the oldest of these blocks planted in 1961. The vines are low-yielding and are grown in shallow, sandy loam soil over superb deep red clay, providing ideal conditions for these varieties.
