Kalleske ‘Moppa’ Shiraz (Barossa Valley, SA)
It is immediately attractive with aromas of roses, cherry, blueberry, potpourri, nutmeg, cinnamon and a hint of pepper spice. The medium-full bodied palate is focused with a burst of bright red fruit balanced with subtle background barrel ferment characters. Tannins are fine and tight adding stylish structure. Pure fruit is the hallmark of this wine with spice and graphite adding drive, together with a touch of dried herbs. Muscular but defined, it is extremely well balanced and finishes lengthy with bright fruit and classy tannins.
