In 1853 our Kalleske farm and vineyard was established at Moppa, a small sub-district of Greenock in the Barossa’s North-West. The Moppa district was a flourishing settlement of pioneering farming families and gold miners. There were few schools in the region, so local parents established the Moppa Public School in 1873 to give their children a formal education. Located on our Kalleske property, generations of the Kalleske family attended this school until its closure in 1935. Sourced entirely from our Kalleske Moppa vineyard, a trace of Viognier and Petit Verdot has been added to this Shiraz giving it a contemporary edge. This is a genuine hand made wine that’s been grown, vintaged and matured on our Kalleske estate at Greenock in the North-Western Barossa.

“Sub-regional (north-west) Barossa shiraz, biodynamically grown... Excellent vitality and drinkability. Blackberries, cranberries, sap and smoke. Has that ashen, meaty note so characteristic of cool vintages like 2002 and 2011. Has enough sweetness though to keep Barossa shiraz drinkers happy. Enough slurpy, smooth texture. Clovey, peppery, licoricey finish. Compact and complex. Great wine to hook into”. Rating 91 - Drink: 2012 – 2017 Campbell Mattinson, the Wine Front, November14th 2012
Winery Tasting Notes
The wine is red-purple in colour.
It is immediately attractive with aromas of roses, cherry, blueberry, potpourri, nutmeg, cinnamon and a hint of pepper spice.
The medium-full bodied palate is focused with a burst of bright red fruit balanced with subtle background barrel ferment characters. Tannins are fine and tight adding stylish structure. Pure fruit is the hallmark of this wine with spice and graphite adding drive, together with a touch of dried herbs. Muscular but defined, it is extremely well balanced and finishes lengthy with bright fruit and classy tannins.
Moppa 2010 is an expressive wine that can be enjoyed now or will cellar well in the medium to long term.
