Tasting Notes

The story

Named a 5 Star Winery & one of the Best Wineries of the Barossa Valley Region by James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2014 Edition, Kalleske is family-owned and has 120 acres of vineyards; the 6th and 7th generations of the family are now tending the vines and producing top class wines, including this Shiraz, named after the founder.

The grapes for this wine are all sourced from the Kalleske estate and are grown according to organic and biodynamic principles on low-yielding vines aged between 49 and 104 years old, consequently well-deserving of the "Old Vine" description. Kalleske believe in minimum intervention in wine-making and after two years maturing in hogsheads (equivalent in size to two barrels), the result is a complex, full-bodied and award-winning wine.

Producer's Notes

"The 2009 Eduard Shiraz is darky inky black in colour. The aroma immediately invokes a serious wine. Emanating from the glass are lifted, powerful aromas of chocolate, fruit cake, dark plum, dried fig, cinnamon and black licorice. These flavours continue to the extremely generous and full-bodied palate. There is a warm, rich, inviting fruit intensity supported by subtle barrel fermentation characters. Ripe, dusty, integrated tannins add good structure to this complex wine. Well-balanced with great texture and multiple layers, this dense Shiraz is completed by a lengthy finish. Eduard is a sophisticated wine of the highest calibre and is worth of cellaring for many years."

Awards

96 points James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2013
(94– 100 Outstanding. Wines of the highest quality, often with a distinguished pedigree.)

“Dark purple-red; made from three vineyard blocks planted between 1905 and ‘60; open-fermented and taken to new and used French and American oak hogsheads to conclude its fermentation; an utterly seductive blend of black fruits and liquorice, fruitcake, dark chocolate and vanilla, quality tannins present from start to finish. Quite a wine”.
