2021 Kalleske Rosina Rose Barossa Valley – In 1853 the Kalleske vineyard and farm was established at Greenock in the North-Western Barossa. Old vines eclipse the property and a selection of both Shiraz and Grenache grapes are used to ensure a flavoursome and complex rose. After specifically harvesting whilst fresh and vibrant, the grapes were wild fermented for added complexity. Anna ‘Rosina’, together with her husband Karl Heinrich ‘Eduard’ Kalleske farmed their vineyard from 1853 until the 1880s. They were pioneers on their property and in the district of Greenock. This wine pays tribute to their accomplishments. Rosina is a genuine hand-made wine that’s been grown and vintaged on the Kalleske estate.
The aroma is exotic. Alluring and bright, strikingly engaging, it signals quality. Strawberries and cream dominate along with heirloom rose petals and musk. The brightness continues to the vividly fresh palate. It is juicy but flavoursome. Crunchy toffee apple is met with watermelon. Perfectly balanced with a hint of sweetness restrained by natural fruity acidity. The finish is dry, long and radiating.
Very drinkable and totally inviting, this fine Rosé is best enjoyed now.
