$18 direct from winery. A blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro (47/40/13). Each variety was fermented separately on left on skins for 7-14 days. Matured in old oak hogsheads for 7 months. Intense ruby colour. Clean youthful heavy aromas of black cherry, raspberry liquor and a hint of char-grilled lamb cutlets. Dry, full-bodied wine of silky texture, moderate fine grained tannins and high acidity. 14% alc. Rich flavours of dark berry fruit, cherry and raspberry. A straight forward wine that is good value for money at this price. Drink now – 2015. 89/100.
Kalleske is certified organic and produces biodynamic wines. I simply love their Old Vine Grenache and Johann Georg Old Vine Shiraz. The Clarry’s GSM 2011 recently picked up a Gold medal at the London International Wine Challenge, and was judged Australia’s Best GSM. Keep a look out for the 2009 and 2010 vintages.
