All Kalleske wines are certified organic and biodynamic, estate grown and vinified with traditional minimalist winemaking techniques used to fully capture the essence of the vineyard allowing genuine handmade estate wines to be produced.
The 2018 Clarry’s is a blend of Grenache (50%), Shiraz (40%) and Mataro (10%), with all grapes from the Kalleske’s organic farm. The Grenache is from low-yielding sandy soils from vines dating back to the 1940s, while the Shiraz and Mataro are sourced from a number of select blocks on the Kalleske estate with soil generally consisting of shallow, sandy loam over superb deep red clay and limestone, providing ideal conditions for these vines.
The wine is fermented in open-top fermenters and basket pressed. To preserve the superb fresh fruit flavors of the wine, it was only aged in very old oak hogsheads and only for a limited time of one year. Clarry’s is soft and fruit-driven with flavors of raspberry, perfume, clove and spice. It is mouthwatering with a muscular structure and great length.
