Kalleske are one of Australia’s leading organic and biodynamic producers. Brothers Troy and Tony are the 7th generation of this winemaking family who have been making wine in the Moppa sub district of Barossa continually since 1853.
2021 was an exemplary vintage with fine wines and good yields. Vintage weather was absolutely perfect throughout, with dry mild-warm days and cool nights ensuring even and steady ripening.
The 2021 Moppa Shiraz is dark purple in colour. The bouquet is inviting with uplifting notes of perfume, spice, blackberry, potpourri, plum and a touch of classy oak. The palate is full-bodied, rich and mouth-filling with immense red and black fruits dominating together with a fine structure adding a defined framework to the plush fruit. Subtle background oak barrel characters compliment the bright fruit flavours. There are elegant natural tannins adding a pleasing dryness. A very lengthy finish completes this well-balanced wine. Overall, this Shiraz is of impeccable balance with the fruit, tannin and oak all working in unison together to provide harmony and complexity. Moppa 2021 is an expressive Shiraz that can be enjoyed now or will cellar well in the medium to long term.
