Kalleske Eduard Barossa Valley Old Vine Shiraz 2020

96 POINTS: Dave Brookes, Wine Companion

“Shiraz from three vineyard blocks on the Kalleske farm in Greenock (planted between 1905 and 1973 and certified organic and biodynamic), destemmed, pressed to new and seasoned French and American oak hogsheads for 24 months. Super-deep crimson in the glass with characters of uber-ripe blackberry, black cherry and macerated plums with baking spices, blackcurrant pastille, panforte, grilled fig, high-cocoa dark chocolate, olive tapenade, chocolate-dipped cherries and earth. Fine, high-resolution pithy tannin support and a long finish featuring a full-bodied swell of cassis, plum, spice and earth with a velvety yet sinewy edge.”
 - Dave Brookes

Thick black/purple in colour. The aroma is instantly powerful. Uplifting with rich dark aromatics of black fruits, cocoa and liquorice with a hint of toasty oak, along with coffee and notes of tamari. The full-bodied palate is deep and boundless.  Dark ripe fruits dominate, together with classy oak. The natural tannin profile and structure is like a seamless mosaic, a muscular dryness with mineral edges but concurrently smooth and poised. Throughout, this wine oozes classic old vine personality with its combination of generosity and pristine balance. The length is immense, completing a charming wine.
