Note By Philip Reedman - Master of Wine
Old vineyards survive because they grow great fruit. The foundation for these wine is a vineyard planted 107 years ago in 1912; a vineyard which has survived and thrived through the good and bad times in the Barossa Valley.
In the hands of John and Barb Kalleske the vineyard’s future is assured. Showing all the attributes of classic old vine Barossa Shiraz, this 2016 vintage has it all in spades. The dense, deep garnet colour speaks of a meagre vineyard yield.
A bouquet offers up: cherry, damson and coconut with toasty, vanilla oak following behind. The seamless, opulent palate is full-bodied, smooth and round; tantalisingly so.
For though this wine is good now its damson, licorice and dark chocolate flavours will develop and become so much more complex over the next dozen or so years.
Try and keep some, please; the vineyard has hung around; there’s surely no rush to drink its progeny.
