93+ Points
A rich and vibrant organic Cabernet from Barossa. This beautiful wine comes from some of the oldest family vines in the valley. Not over-ripe or jammy but balanced, with black and red fruits punching through with freshness against serious depth of spice, structure and classy oak. One hell of a wine, this one will decant well soon or cellar for some time.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Its Origins

In South Australia's Barossa Valley, the Kalleske family have been farming and growing grapes since 1853 near the village of Greenock. They are one of the region's leading grape-growing families consistently growing some of the Barossa's best quality grapes. After six generations of growing grapes, winemaker and seventh generation family member, Troy Kalleske, together with his brother Tony, established the Kalleske winery and made the first ‘Kalleske’ wine. The winery is situated on the family estate where traditional winemaking techniques ensure the vineyard realises its full potential as wine. The 120 acre vineyard is planted to Shiraz, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Semillon, Chenin Blanc, Mataro, Petit Verdot, Durif, Viognier, Tempranillo and Zinfandel. Vines vary in age with the oldest remaining vineyard dating back to 1875 and an overall average vine age of about 50 years. The vineyard is low yielding with grapes grown organically and biodynamically and the winery is also certified biodynamic/organic.

What The Critics Say

92/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski (2016 vintage)

"Aged 13 months in 30% new French oak hogsheads, the 2016 Merchant Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon offers mere hints of dried herbs on the nose, followed by notes of cassis and red currants. It's medium to full-bodied, with a supple, velvety texture and long finish. It manages to combine immediate accessibility and ripeness with varietal character and moderate aging potential."
