Kalleske Merchant Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 75cl
Tasting Note: This is my sort of new world power wine. Big Cabernet fruit, cherries and cassis with sweeter nots coming off. Dark veggie flavours mix with brambles and prunes with a silky tannin, and a bitter finish. This is a very well balanced, very sexy wine. 94pts Peter Wood
Producer: On 18th November 1838, merchant and miller, Johann Georg Kalleske and his wife Johanne Dorothea, together with their four children landed in the newly established colony of South Australia. They had sailed for many months on the Prince George, from half-way around the world, fleeing religious persecution in their homeland, Prussia. In 1853 the Kalleske farm was established at Moppa, a small sub-district of Greenock in the North-Western Barossa Valley. Since settlement the Kalleske farm has been a mix of enterprises including vineyard, orchard, sheep, dairy, pigs, cropping, milling and merchanting. Today, the property continues to be a diverse and thriving mix of vineyards, sheep, cattle, chaff mill and winery. The farm has been in continual family ownership for more than 150 years and is today tended by the sixth and seventh generation of the Kalleske family.
