Bright primary fruits abound. There is ripe plum, violet florals and crushed blackberry. Milk chocolate and clove spice are also evident, adding complexity to the vivid fruits. The pure fruits from the aroma flourish throughout the palate. Whilst juicy,there is also a round softness to the wine adding a lightly creamy texture to balance the primal fruits and finely structured natural tannins.

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.
