KALLESKE GREENOCK SHIRAZ 2016 is available to buy in increments of 1
Heart and soul for Kalleske, Greenock is a home single vineyard tended by 6th and 7th generation family members. Sandy loam over deep red clay and limestone offer hard soils but enough water retention to get these beautiful old vines through the intense Barossa summer. Another organic and complex Greenock that will hit its straps soon or last decades in cellar.
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"2016 Greenock Shiraz is rich dark purple-black in colour. It is very intense aromatically and immediately indicates an impressive, mighty and sophisticated wine. Oozing classic ripe Barossa Shiraz there are aromas of blueberry, fruit cake, deep florals, cocoa, sweet tobacco, licorice and a hint of vanilla bean. The complex palate is rich and full-bodied. Intense dark fruits dominate complimented with subtle oak barrel nuances. The dense fruit is framed by strong tannins. But being naturally derived the tannins are fully integrated adding structure, definition and future longevity. The length on this wine is nothing short of ravishing. It is a dry lingering finish combined with lush fruit persistence. This is a wine of great purity and utmost calibre. Greenock is a complex, refined and classy Barossa Shiraz that has a long cellaring future."
92/100 Toni Patterson, The Real Review, July 2017 (2016 Vintage)
“Deeply-coloured with bright fruit within an open, spacious frame. Sweet vanilla oak tones are evident on the nose plus a little crushed leaf. There is an appealing energy to the dark fruit and a touch of green peppercorn on the finish. It needs time in the cellar to mellow and bloom. Cellar 2020 - 2030."
94/100 Andrew Smith, The Wine Smith, August 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Big boned Barossa Shiraz lovers gather around! This one is for you! So impressive is this aroma, that the classic dark red colour was glossed over until the second pour. It’s heavily clad with dark and red fruits and a touch of clove.The palate comes across like black currant jubes. Fleshy raspberry, blueberry and quince paste as well. There is caramel too which adds to the pleasantly full, jammy mouthfeel. Moderately strong acidity is needed as it restrains the fruit. Well integrated oak & firm (but not aggressive) walnut-like tannin also help in this department. The heavily peppered finish rolls on and on with licorice appearing along the cedary conclusion. I’d have to say the Kalleske 2016 Greenock Shiraz is like a young and exuberant mickey bull. It’s so powerful and full of life. It’s great now but I suspect it will be epic in another 5 to 10 years time."
