Kalleske Old Vine Grenache
Kalleske Old Vine Grenache, Barossa Valley The Kalleske family makes their Old Vine Grenache in the Barossa Valley, where they have been farming and growing grapes since the 1800s. Yet this old Barossa family have been cited by Max Allen in 2010 as a model for the future of the Barossa. Estate grown, vinified and matured on the Kalleske Greenock estate, the Old Vine Grenache is made from a single vineyard planted in 1935 as bush vines on the Kalleske farm. The shallow sand and light clay ensure that these dry-grown grapes are intensely flavoured fruit.
Serafino Reserve Grenache
Perfumes of forest berries, cherries, plums and spice. This Grenache is medium bodied, with a long even bright palate. This brightness is super silky with spice, violets and plums. A fruit forward style with beautiful complexity. The fruit is destemmed and then whole fruit is transferred to small open fermenters. The fermentation lasts up to 10 days at moderate temperatures. During the fermentation the wine is taken away from the skins and returned over the skins to aid in gentle extraction of the flavours and tannins. A small portion of the wine underwent carbonic maceration adding to the cherry fruit lift. The wine develops in a combination of 8 to 12 year old French and American hogsheads. The Serafino story began in 1964 when Steve (Serafino) Maglieri arrived in Australia from Italy as a passionate teenager full of dreams. Two years later, with the assistance of his father Giovanni, he planted his first vines in McLaren Vale that now extends to 350 acres, laying the foundation of a winemaking dynasty that today is known as Serafino Wines and overseen by his daughter, Maria. From the beginning, Steve and his father worked from dawn to dusk seven days a week to produce wines of such outstanding quality that it wasnt long before the accolades began to flow.
