Aromatics are primal and lifted with bright floral perfume, crushed red berries, mixed spice and red liquorice with a touch of milk chocolate. The palate is energetic with lashings of flavour.  Red fruits dominate with plenty of upfront juiciness, leading into a finely structured and eloquent wine.  Light grippy tannins give a strong backbone perfectly balancing the plush generous fruit.  The finish is lengthy and radiant, completing a pure and expressive wine. 

A strikingly complex wine for the age, Zeitgeist is enjoyable now with its primal characters, but is powered to cellar well for many years to come.  A completely natural wine that you must try.

Tasting notes for Kalleske Zeitgeist Shiraz 2022 from the Winery

Zeitgeist: the spirit of the time; general trend or characteristic of a particular period in time.

There are luminous aromatics.  Plenty of perfume, fresh grapes, crushed blackberries, black cherries, sweet spice, violets and liquorice.

The palate is bright, inviting and full-bodied.  Rich dark fruit characters dominate. It is a generous wine in flavour intensity and palate weight. Tannins are solid giving a robust structure to balance the luscious ripe fruit.  The purity and drive of this wine continues to the elongated finish. A strikingly complex Shiraz for the age, Zeitgeist is best enjoyed now with its primal characters.

Vineyard

The Kalleske vineyard is a diverse mix of 120 acres of vines spread over the 500 acre farm.  Shiraz dominates the plantings and multiple Shiraz blocks spanning from 1905 to 1998 were blended to make this wine.  Shiraz from these blocks will go into the usual Kalleske Eduard, Greenock, Moppa and Clarry’s wines.  All Shiraz vines are low yielding and soils are typically shallow sand with excellent clay subsoil.

Winemaking

The Shiraz blocks were harvested over numerous weeks from February 26th through to March 13th.  Each batch was separately destemmed into an open-top fermenter where it was native yeast fermented for 7-10 days on skins with hand pumpovers employed twice daily.  The musts were pressed and a portion of each lot was set aside in stainless tank to create this Zeitgeist blend.  Following settling, the young wine was bottled in early June, without sulphur dioxide, to capture the vibrancy and primacy of the vintage.
