Winery/Brand: Kalleske


The Greenock Shiraz 2005 is deep red-black in colour with a purple rim. The nose is extremely inviting with concentrated aromas of dark plum, black licorice, cocoa, coffee, blackberry and clove spice.The palate is rich and full bodied with layers of flavour supported by a harmonious balance. Intense pure fruit, subtle barrel maturation characters and fine integrated tannins combine for a complete and stylish wine. It’s a muscular wine that fills the entire mouth with its generosity. A very persistent finish completes this powerful but sophisticated wine that will cellar well for many years.



The Story

The 2005 growing season started with a wet Winter and Spring, providing excellent moisture for the vines. A cooler than average Summer with no heat waves resulted in gradual ripening and retained natural acidity in the grapes. A dry, mild to warm Autumn with sunny days provided ideal ripening conditions to finish the grapes to maturity. A good vintage with intense flavours.
