There were three different types of barrels used based on the biodynamic/lunar cycles. Flower barrel – lifted florals, cloves and annise with full bodied juicy red fruit and super fine tannins; Fruit barrel – complex and powerful with chocolate and ripe plum aromas. Thick ripe fruit paired with rich oak and balanced with solid tannins; Root barrel – Notes of vanilla and toast frame the stewed plum and dark fruit aromas. Dry toasty oak overlays the fullbodied dark fruit and grippy tannins give it a savoury quality.

In South Australia’s Barossa Valley, the Kalleske family have been farming and growing grapes since 1853 near the village of Greenock. They are one of the region’s leading grape growing families and part of the selected few that were chosen to provide grapes for the world renowned Penfold’s Grange. Seventh generation brothers, Troy and Tony established the winery in 2002 which is now certified as an organic and biodynamic producer. They are caretakers of the land and not only want to maintain the environment but improve it for future generations. Since the first wine release in 2004, Kalleske has rapidly gained a reputation for producing top-quality hand crafted wines. So much so that Kalleske winery has received accolades from James Halliday in 2014 as best producer in Barossa along with winning the award for best organic wine producer at the 2013 International Wine Challenge.
