KALLESKE MERCHANT CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2015 is available to buy in increments of 1
A rich and vibrant organic Cabernet from Barossa. This beautiful wine comes from some of the oldest family vines in the valley. Not over-ripe or jammy but beautifully balanced, with black and red fruits punching through with freshness against serious depth of spice, structure and classy oak. One hell of a wine, this one will decant well soon or cellar for some time.
Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Merchant Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from a single vineyard that was planted on the Kalleske property at the end of last century. The hand-pruned vines are low-yielding and are grown in shallow, sandy loam soil over superb deep red clay, providing ideal conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon.

2015 Merchant Cabernet Sauvignon is vivid purple-red in colour. The aroma is enticing with lifted boysenberry, cedar, violet and molasses. The very engaging aromatics lead to the equally charming medium-full bodied palate. Dark berried fruits are spread throughout and together with classy oak make for a captivating wine. The natural tannins add a refreshing dryness to compliment the sweet fruits and give muscular form. Varietal character is respected, powerful but controlled giving good balance. A long finish completes a very smart wine. Merchant is a classic Barossa Cabernet that can be equally enjoyed now or in a decade."
4 1/2 Stars Winestate Magazine, March/April 2017 (2015 Vintage)
“Big, bold chunky choc minty aromas laced with blackberries. Strong, drying and astringent in the mouth with lovely rich, dark fruit flavours. Just need some time to settle."
91/100 James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion (2015 Vintage)
"From vines planted in the late 90s, destemmed, open-fermented with pump overs, 10 days on skins, matured for 14 months in French oak (30% new). Notably luscious, with blackcurrant/cassis fruit balanced by firm cabernet tannins."
