In 1853 our Kalleske vineyard and farm was established at Greenock in the North-Western Barossa. Old vineyards eclipse the property and a 1940s planting of Grenache is the backbone of this rosé, with Shiraz and Viognier added for extra complexity. After specifically harvesting whilst fresh and vibrant, the grapes were wild fermented and partially barrel matured for added complexity. Anna ‘Rosina’, together with her husband Karl Heinrich ‘Eduard’ Kalleske farmed our vineyard from 1853 until the 1880s. They were pioneers on our property and in the district of Greenock. This wine pays tribute to their accomplishments. Rosina is a genuine hand-made wine that’s been grown, vintaged and matured on our Kalleske estate.

“Here's another biodynamic vineyard wine. It comes from Barossa Grenache grapes, with small components of Shiraz and Viognier, and is watermelon-hued. It has potpourri scents and brings fresh raspberry flavour to the front of the palate. Herb and dried cranberry nuances chime in on the middle palate and the finish has flinty acid”.4 Stars - John Lewis, Newcastle Herald, October 6th 2012
“The cherry red colour of this South Australian rose is alluring. It has been a perfect growing season for the Grenache grapes, the base of this wine, which also has shiraz and a dash of viognier. Promoted as 100 per cent organic biodynamic, this wine has a generous, lingering finish. It has flavours of raspberry and cherry and is vibrant and crisp. Enjoy with a seafood pasta”.Rating 92 - Jane Howie, Geelong Advertiser, October 11th 2012
Winery Tasting Notes
The 2012 Rosina is vivid floral pink in colour.
On the nose there are bright lifted aromatics of strawberries and cream, flowers, musk and perfume.
The palate is fresh and juicy with mouthfilling flavours of raspberry, cherry and Summer berries. Vibrant and crisp, the palate is balanced with restrained grape sweetness. There is a round textural richness to the wine adding weight and interest. This delicious rosé is completed by a generous lingering finish.
