A rich and flowing GSM blend from organic legends, Kalleske. With layers of plump fruit, spice, acid and tannin layers from these three classic Rhone varietals -- Grenache, Syrah and Mouverdre -- this is incredibly approachable young (i.e. right now) while being a seriously dimensional drop from a top boutique producer. Our own import and far better than the price.

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 James Halliday (2017 vintage)

"Estate-grown, picked 30 Mar-26 Apr, each variety open-fermented separately, matured in very old French hogsheads for 4 months. A powerful, no beg your pardon wine, great for bbqs or traditional slow-cooked Barossa Valley meat dishes. It is a liquid expression of the stoic courage of the Barossa Deutsch vignerons through 150+ years of struggle."

91/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski (2017 vintage)
