The Kalleskes’ Greenock Shiraz was planted in 1999 on land that had been in the family for nearly 150 years but used only for crops and grazing sheep. Shawn Kalleske was convinced that Greenock's ironstone soils would be perfect for Shiraz, and from day one the family have been excited by the results. The 2019 was grown on a single parcel known as East Block, an own-rooted plot planted to a mix of clones including the original 1890 Greenock property Shiraz clone. The fruit was destemmed and the berries crushed before going to small 3-tonne open-top fermenters where it was hand plunged twice a day over 20 days. The wine then rested for 20 months in a mixture of new and seasoned French and American oak. It’s another class act from Shawn Kalleske, built for the cellar but approachable now with a decant and a great steak.
