Kalleske Merchant Single Vineyard Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

There’s always been an authentic, hand made feel to Troy and Tony Kalleske’s wines, but it seems the lads have refined a sense of polish in recent years, reinforced by the advent of their ultra-slick, retro, embossed bottles. There’s nothing shy about the second release of their foray into single vineyard cabernet, a concentrated and intense incarnation, with a rich core of cassis and tiny blackcurrants, overlaid with distinct bay leaf, fruit mince spice and dark chocolate French oak. A lush, sweet fruit core pulls into a savoury and spicy finish, underpinned by rustic tannins. Authentic character and appeal. Buy direct from Kalleske.
