Kalleske Greenock by Troy Kalleske
Kalleske 2015 Greenock Shiraz
The grapes were harvested on February 17th from a single vineyard, the “Greenock” block. After picking, the grapes were destemmed into open top fermenters. They were fermented warm with hand pumpovers twice a day for 8 days on skins prior to pressing. After pressing off skins the wines were filled to a mix of 30% new and the balance used American and French oak hogsheads. The wines completed primary fermentation and underwent natural malolactic fermentation in barrel. The wine was matured in barrel for sixteen months prior to bottling.
