Winemaker Notes

The Greenock Shiraz 2005 is deep red-black in color with a purple rim. The nose is extremely inviting with concentrated aromas of dark plum, black licorice, cocoa, coffee, blackberry and clove spice. The palate is rich and full bodied with layers of flavor supported by a harmonious balance. Intense pure fruit, subtle barrel maturation characters and fine integrated tannins combine for a complete and stylish wine. It's a muscular wine that fills the entire mouth with its generosity. A very persistent finish completes this powerful but sophisticated wine that will cellar well for many years.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Shiraz “Greenock” is opaque purple-colored with an impressive perfume of toast, smoke, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry. This leads to a full-bodied, powerful, tightly wound Shiraz with tons of spicy blue and black fruit flavors, ample ripe tannins, and a long finish. This big, muscular Shiraz requires 5-7 years of additional cellaring and should drink well through 2030.

Kalleske Winery Image
In South Australia's Barossa Valley, the Kalleske family have been farming and growing grapes since the 1800s near the village of Greenock. They are one of the regions leading grapegrowing families consistently growing some of the Barossa's best quality grapes. After five generations of growing grapes, winemaker and sixth generation family member, Troy Kalleske, established the Kalleske winery and created the Kalleske label. The winery is situated on the family estate where open top fermenters, basket press and barrel store ensure the vineyard realises its full potential as wine.

The vineyard is managed by Troy's father, fifth generation grapegrower, John Kalleske, who has over forty years experience tending the vineyard. The 100 acre vineyard is planted to Shiraz, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Semillon and Chenin Blanc. Vines vary in age with the oldest vineyard dating back to 1875 and an overall average vine age of about 50 years. The vineyard is low yielding and all grapes are grown organically.

There are five wines in the Kalleske range. Clarry’s Barossa White is a blend of Semillon and Chenin Blanc and its partner Clarry’s Barossa Red is a Grenache Shiraz blend. The Greenock Shiraz is a single vineyard wine, made from a superb Shiraz block on the Western edge of the Greenock Creek. The Old Vine Grenache is from a small dry-grown vineyard planted as bush vines on the Kalleske farm in 1935 and the Johann Georg Shiraz is made from a dry-grown vineyard planted on the farm in 1875.

All wines are estate grown and vinified with minimalistic winemaking techniques used to fully capture the essence of the vineyard allowing genuine hand made estate wines to be produced.
