In 1853 Karl Heinrich ‘Eduard’ Kalleske and his three siblings together with their parents Johann Georg and Johanne Dorothea migrated from Prussia. They landed in the newly established colony of South Australia and in 1853 they settled at Greenock in the North-Western Barossa Valley and established our Kalleske farm. Eduard and his wife Anna ‘Rosina’ worked the Kalleske vineyard until the 1880s when their son took over the reins. Today six generations later those old vines are still prospering, thanks to the foresight and hard work of our ancestors. We dedicate this wine to Eduard which is from a selection of old vine Shiraz vineyards planted on our Kalleske property between 1905 to 1971. Hand winemaking and two year hogshead maturation has resulted in a stunning old vine wine destined for long term cellaring.

“A blend of grenache, shiraz, mourvèdre, carignan and cinsault, this is flush with gloriously juicy red, blue and purple fruits, the components picked with unerring accuracy. Hewitson weaves some of the magic of the Rhône Valley’s iconic Chateau Rayas, the ultimate compliment. 96 Points, $25"
