KALLESKE Johann Georg Old Vine Shiraz, Barossa Valley 2006

Rich and voluminous, Kalleske Johann Georg Shiraz is a classic Barossa style with dark berry, dark chocolate aromas and flavours, dense chocolaty tannins and underlying mocha oak. Sourced from the low yielding one-hectare Johann Georg Vineyard Shiraz planted in 1875, the “ancestor vines” (125 years +) are hand pruned and hand harvested. Traditional open-top vinification is followed by gentle basket pressing and maturation in new (30%) and seasoned French and American hogsheads.

Region Barossa Valley

Colonel William Light, the South Australian colony’s Surveyor-General, named the Barossa in 1837 after the site of an English victory over the French in the Spanish Peninsular War. In the mid-1800’s Silesian and English immigrants settled in the area. The Barossa itself comprises two distinct sub-regions: Eden Valley and the warmer Barossa Valley floor at 270m.The Barossa Valley enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate characterised by hot dry summers and relatively low rainfall. Cool sea breezes from the Gulf of St Vincent modify the temperature, however hot northerly winds can occasionally dominate creating considerable vine stress. Many older established vineyards are dry-grown, but supplementary irrigation is also extensively used. The valley is comprised of rich brown soils and alluvial sands. A long history of uninterrupted viticulture in the area means the Barossa valley is home to Australia’s largest concentration of old-vine Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre with man

Although most famous for Shiraz, the Barossa can also produce fragrant and deliciously fruity Grenache blends and beautifully rich, chocolatey Cabernet Sauvignons.

Winery KALLESKE

Kalleske is one of the Barossa Valley’s oldest and most important winegrowing families. The family of first generation settler Johann Georg Kalleske established the mixed farm at Greenock in 1853, after arriving in South Australia from Prussia in 1838. Today, the substantial organic and biodynamic 120-acre vineyard, with an average vine age of 50 years, is regarded as one of the region’s great “grower” vineyards. It has been a key source for many extraordinary Australian wines, including Penfolds Grange. Kalleske produces an array of wines, predominantly top quality rich powerful reds, crafted from estate grown fruit sourced from Kalleske’s precious old-vine holdings in the Barossa.
