Kalleske `Greenock` Shiraz 2007 (6 x 750mL), Barossa, SA.

Kalleske Greenock Shiraz is a single vineyard wine sourced from a low yielding block consisting of shallow sandy loam over superb deep red clay providing ideal conditions for Shiraz vines. The wine is made in open-top fermenters and basket pressed and matured in hogsheads for up to two years before being bottled without fining or filtration. It is a powerful wine with intense flavours of dark fruits and toasty oak supported by fine ripe tannins. A wine with a strong backbone and a long finish that will cellar for a long time.

Expert Reviews

An unabashed full-bodied wine, with fruit, tannins and oak in abundance; really does need time to slim down, which it will do. Rating 93 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (DEC/2008)
