Kalleske Greenock Shiraz 2016

Single vineyard, traditional Barossa shiraz with organic viticulture (certified). Sees new and old American and French oak barrels. Serious stuff in the glass. Pours with that authoritative, midnight colour.

Brooding, heady, rich, dense, powerful red. A fog of choc-berry, dark chocolate liquorice, rum ‘n’ raisin icecream, espresso and, curiously, violet floral notes. A foreboding entry to the wine. A muscular flow in the palate, wrestles with the tongue in dark fruits, more espresso and liqourice, sweetness, ripeness, and nougat-vanilla wood characters. Stains everything in its path, firm with grip and closes with a chewy pucker. Hold onto your hats! It’s done exceptionally well in its full-bodied way.
