Wine Summary Image

The Johann Georg Shiraz is Kalleske’s flagship wine and is sourced from the oldest vineyard on the Kalleske farm, planted in 1875, producing very low yields (around 1 tonne per acre) from gnarly, dry grown vines. All the fruit for this wine was harvested before the 15 day 2008 heat wave.

Expert Reviews

An impressive blockbuster; dense colour, with a staggering level of dark black fruit on display, a savoury element lurking beneath; the fruit has a desiccated edge, and oak plays a pivotal role; this being said the wine shows life and vitality. If you like them massive then this is for you. - James Halliday

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Spectacular colour - a super saturate of black purple with a black heart and very deep black crimson hue showing superb glass cling. Perfumed aromas with lifted top notes of violets and blackberry followed by some dark plum, liquorice and confectionary. The palate delivers an explosive flavour experience framed by perfectly integrated silky smooth tannins. Blackberry, liquorice and blackpepper flavours fully encompass the palate and are followed by some vanilla and confectionary. Exceptionally long aftertaste of liquorice, blackberry, blackpepper and confectionary.

Winery Profile

In South Australia's Barossa Valley, the Kalleske family have been farming and growing grapes since 1853 near the village of Greenock. They are one of the regions leading grape-growing families consistently growing some of the Barossa's best quality grapes. After six generations of growing grapes, winemaker and seventh generation family member, Troy Kalleske, together with his brother Tony, established the Kalleske winery and made the first ‘Kalleske’ wine. The winery is situated on the family estate where traditional winemaking techniques ensure the vineyard realises its full potential as wine.

The vineyard is managed by Troy's and Tony’s parents, John and Lorraine, and brother, Kym. John has over forty years experience tending the vineyard.The 120 acre vineyard is planted to Shiraz, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Semillon, Chenin Blanc, Mataro, Petit Verdot, Durif, Viognier, Tempranillo and Zinfandel. Vines vary in age with the oldest remaining vineyard dating back to 1875 and an overall average vine age of about 50 years. The vineyard is low yielding with grapes grown organically and biodynamically and the winery is also certified biodynamic/organic.

The Kalleske family are active practitioners of sustainable farming. They are caretakers of the land and not only want to maintain the environment but improve it for future generations.All Kalleske wines are estate grown and vinified with minimalist winemaking techniques used to fully capture the essence of the vineyard allowing genuine hand made estate wines to be produced. The range is a diverse mix of wines that showcases the splendid Kalleske grapes.

Since the first wine release in 2004, Kalleske has rapidly gained a reputation for producing top-quality hand crafted wines. Kalleske are committed to continue making genuine estate grown wines of individuality and of vineyard and winemaking excellence.
