Kalleske Old Vine Grenache is made from a low yielding, single vineyard planted in 1935 on our Kalleske estate. Situated on the outskirts of Greenock in the North-Western Barossa Valley, the Kalleske’s have been farming this property for over 150 years and the vineyard is now tended by sixth and seventh generation family members. Following picking these dry-grown Grenache grapes were fermented in open fermenters and then gently pressed in our estate winery. The wine was matured in seasoned oak hogsheads for eighteen months giving a complex Grenache wine, which will benefit from cellaring.

This wine is 100% Organic / Biodynamic as certified by Australian Certified Organic.

Expert Reviews

“Grown on a single grenache vineyard that was planted in 1935. Bush vines. Organically / biodynamically farmed. Remarkably peppery. Black pepper. Violets and sweet, musky fruit too. Alive, vibrant, buoyant. Perfume leaps from the glass – aniseed, smoke, meat and pepper – and the palate delivers as the nose promises. Nutty aftertaste. Fine line of spicy tannin rippling throughout. Most enjoyable Kalleske grenache in years – and perhaps ever”. Rating 93+ Drink: 2013 – 2020 Campbell Mattinson, the Wine Front, November14th 2012

Winery Tasting Notes


Old Vine Grenache 2011 is medium red in colour.


The nose is very lifted with aromatics of red fruits, raspberry, white pepper spice, perfume, black tea, herbs and musk.


The medium-bodied palate is flavoursome with dark cherry, crushed raspberry and rhubarb. The natural tannins are chalky but fine and integrated adding a balanced structure to the wine. Maturation in seasoned barrels has added a savoury complexity. A very long finish of fruit purity completes this stylish wine. This distinguished Grenache drinks well now but is ideally suited for serious cellaring.
