    Introducing Bert's Legacy Shiraz: A Tribute to Barossa Valley Heritage

    93 Points - Ray Jordan 

    We are delighted to present Bert's Legacy Shiraz, a wine that pays homage to the rich history of the Barossa Valley and the enduring spirit of the man who once worked the very land from which this exceptional fruit is sourced. Named after Bert Kleining, a beloved bachelor who toiled on the land, this wine is a true testament to the legacy of passion and dedication.

    Tasting Note: Bert's Legacy Shiraz showcases a deep ruby red hue, hinting at the depth within. On the nose, enchanting notes of raspberry and red plum lead the way. The palate is a symphony of complexity, unveiling ripe tannins, tantalizing toasted bread, and vanilla aromas, intertwined with a delightful spicy character of cloves and white pepper.

    Pairing: Embrace the splendor of Bert's Legacy Shiraz with high-grade Wagyu steak or indulge in the tender succulence of slow-roast lamb. Its versatility allows for an array of delectable pairings to elevate your dining experience.

    Alcohol: 14.5%

    Maturation: Aged for 20 months in a mix of 20% New French oak and 3rd and 4th fill French and American Oak Hogsheads, this wine boasts stunning oak smoothness and a rich mouthfeel, adding depth to its remarkable character.

    Vineyard: Bert's Legacy Shiraz hails from vines planted between 1951 and 2000. The single cordon spur (hand) pruned vines ensure low yield and high-grade fruit production, with each vine tended to with utmost care.

    Sub Regions: Sourced from the iconic subregion of Koonunga, located at the Northern tip of the Barossa Valley, the vines thrive in ancient Red/Brown Clay loam over deep red clay, revealing the secret to the wine's concentration and structure.

    Elevation: 270-290 Metres

    Cellaring: While this wine is ready to be enjoyed now, its potential for aging gracefully is exceptional, with the promise of evolving beautifully until 2032. For the ultimate experience, be sure to decant and allow its true quality to shine.

    Experience the heritage and heart of Bert's Legacy Shiraz. Raise your glass in tribute to a tale of dedication and love for the land, and savor the essence of the Barossa Valley in every luxurious sip.

      The Kalleske family has five generations-worth of experience growing Shiraz in the Barossa so when
      they identify a vineyard that they think is perfect for Shiraz it’s a comment worth listening to. In the
      mid-seventies Andy’s parents spotted just such a block and planted it. The Bachelor Shiraz is the result; named in honour of Bert Kleinig from whom they bought the block.
      Cut from the cloth that is classic Barossa Shiraz this vintage of The Bachelor is a great cellaring proposition, it’s easily got 15 years in it and likely a good few more. Currently it’s youthful and explosively rich with primary brightness melded with subtle oak toastiness. As it evolves in the cellar I see layers of complexity revealing themselves and the opulence maturing into more subtle flavours. It’s a show-stopper right now though.


      18 Months in 30% New French oak and 3rd and 4th fill mix of French and American Oak Hogsheads to give stunning oak smoothness and rich mouthfeel.

    Surely this should be a more expensive wine - for one so young it’s an exceptional drop.
