Kalleske Moppa Shiraz 2021

In 1853 the Kalleske farm and vineyard was established at Moppa, a small sub-district of Greenock in the Barossa’s North-West. The Moppa district was a flourishing settlement of pioneering farming families and gold miners. There were few schools in the region, so local parents established the Moppa Public School in 1873 to give their children a formal education. Located on their Kalleske property, generations of the Kalleske family attended this school until its closure in 1935. Sourced entirely from the Kalleske Moppa vineyard, a trace of Petit Verdot and Viognier has been added to this Shiraz giving it a contemporary edge. This is a genuine hand made wine that’s been grown, vintaged and matured on the Kalleske estate at Greenock in the North-Western Barossa.

Nose:

There is an array of delectable aromatics exuding from the glass. It displays notes of potpourri, malt, plum cake, clove spice, ginger, anise and violet.

Palate:

The palate is full-bodied, rich and flavoursome with a vivacious expression of ripe berry fruits. It is a mouth-filling wine, generous but admirably balanced. The natural tannins are well integrated adding a chalky spine. Subtle cedary oak is evident playing a supportive role in the background. As expected from this bountiful wine the finish is equally impressive, long and pure-fruited. Moppa 2020 is an expressive Shiraz that can be enjoyed now or will cellar well in the medium to long term.
