Kalleske Clarry’s GSM 2013

There’s a fistful of producers in this wide, brown land who have a knack for nailing the drinkability of red blends in a just-so way that sort of surpasses the blend and just makes for a reveller’s good time drink of joy and slurpability; and then they price accordingly fairly. One such I think of is Kalleske and this Clarry’s GSM blend. Couple in the heavyweight, sexy, old school bottle and one of the finest looking screwcaps going around, and you’ve pretty much got a complete package for a ‘lobster’, at full price. This review won’t stop the legion of core fans, nor rouse a new army, most likely, some wines just are what they are…

And it’s a good year for Clarry’s because it’s showing some cool restraint. Sweetness is high, but so is spice and a lemony twinge of acidity that keeps the wine perky and fresh, and better yet, medium bodied. It glides effortlessly across the palate, a total guzzler that, dare I say lest the wrath of the Barossa old, you could almost knock a chill into and enjoy. Texture is almost crunchy though it’s glossy too. Joy! Simple things…
