Greenock Shiraz is produced in South Australia's Barossa Valley, by the Kalleske family who have been
farming and growing grapes since the 1800s. It is a genuine estate wine - grown, vintaged and matured
on the Kalleske estate at Greenock.
Kalleske Greenock Shiraz is sourced from a single vineyard, located on the Western edge of the Greenock
Creek in the Northern Barossa Valley.
The vineyard consists of shallow, sandy loam soil over superb deep red clay and limestone, providing
ideal conditions for Shiraz vines.
Extremely dark red-black in colour with a rich purple rim.
The nose shows masses of rich blood plum together with mocha, vanilla and sweet berry fruits.
The palate is generous, deeply layered and very concentrated. It is seamless with dark fruit, mocha and
rich fruit cake flavours. A well balanced wine with with big ripe tannins and an astoundingly long finish.
A wine that will cellar for a long, long time.
"A barrel sample of the 2003 Shiraz Greenock appears to be a virtually perfect wine. If it makes it into the bottle with minimal clarification, it will be one of the leading candidates for Barossa’s "Shiraz of the Vintage" in 2003.
Barrel Sample: 96 to 100 Points"
The Wine Advocate
"Dense colour; very powerful, ripe and concentrated black fruits, prune and dark chocolate; tannins entirely appropriate. Long future. "
