2021 Kalleske JMK Shiraz VP 375ml Barossa Valley – JMK Shiraz VP is a luscious fortified Shiraz grown and vintaged on the Kalleske family farm at Greenock in the North-Western Barossa Valley. This wine is dedicated to fifth generation grapegrower, John Malcolm Kalleske (JMK), who has tended the Kalleske family vineyards for more than 50 years. The vineyard for this special wine was hand pruned and harvested by John. JMK Shiraz reflects the dedication of John and the generations before him to the treasured Kalleske vineyard.
Kalleske JMK Shiraz VP is sourced from select blocks of the Kalleske vineyard. The vineyard consists of shallow, sandy loam soil over superb deep red clay and limestone, providing ideal conditions for Shiraz vines.
The buoyant aromatics are tremendous, briskly bounding forth. Extremely alluring and dynamic there are characters of plum jam, ripe figs, toffee, chocolate cake, sweet spice, cherry liqueur and more. The palate is rich, luscious and full-bodied. Initially greeted with a hit of rich dark sweet fruits along with licorice and spice, it progresses to a punchy fine tannin structure. The residual grape sweetness is perfectly balanced with these natural tannins providing dry refreshment. Grape spirit is completely integrated adding another dimension to this multifaceted VP. Pristine bright fruit weaves throughout and continues to the almost never-ending finish.
JMK is a harmonious, soft and opulent wine that can be enjoyed now whilst young and vibrant however will strongly reward patience in the cellar for decades to come.
