2017 Kalleske Elenore Semillon

93 points

“Semillon was the Barossa’s traditional white variety a few decades back, but fashion has not been kind and it’s dropped off the radar somewhat. Thank goodness then this 1980s planted block remains in the Kalleske estate in the region’s northwest to remind us of the grape’s gifts. Certified organic, it has a waft of wheat field, a creamy note with a delicate drop of honey, and a range of barrels, concrete egg shaped vessels and tanks giving both richness and vitality. Gorgeous.”

Best with: Fennel, pear, white cheese salad

2017 Kalleske Moppa Shiraz

95 Points & 5 Stars

Intensely aromatic with notes of ripe red cherry, candy floss, musk and rose. The palate is bursting with fleshy, ripe, sweet-fruit flavours with accents of chocolate and vanilla. The tannins are ripe and perfectly integrated. It is a luscious red wine with immense softness, intensity and brightness which will delight lovers of full-bodied, full-fruited shiraz. Great value too!

2017 Kalleske Greenock Shiraz

95 Points

The estate vines are direct descendants of the first vines planted on the property in the late 1800s. Deeply coloured, the wine is intensely focused on black fruits with a piquant undertone of spice, briar and earth. It’s one of those wines that shouldn’t be subjected to analysis.

James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion, 1 January 2019.

2018 Kalleske Zeitgeist Shiraz

This shiraz ticks all the barbecuered boxes: magnificent saturated colour, barrowloads of blackberry fruit, rich, supple, steak-friendly tannin. No need to tell anyone it’s also biodynamic and preservative free. Just geddit innya, mate.
