Kalleske Old Vine Grenache

Kalleske is one of the Australian wineries I truly admire. It has grown from a grower to an estate winery, with beautifully maintained old vineyards and an expression very true to grape variety and the Greenock/Moppa location. The Old Vine Grenache is one of the outstanding Grenaches in Australia.

Tonight I had the 2005 Kalleske Old Vine Grenache. This wine is quite sweet, true to the Grenache variety. It is very lively, you would not think it is five years old. I admire the texture of the wine, the silky tannins and long finish. This is so smooth...

Score: 95/++
