Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

Kalleske Rosina Grenache Shiraz Viognier CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache Shiraz Viognier Barossa South Australia
Anna Rosina, together with husband Karl Heinrich, established and farmed the Kalleske vineyard from 1853 until the 1880s. They were amongst the earliest pioneers in the salubrious Barossa winegrowing village of Greenock. Old vines still eclipse the property and a 1940s planting of Grenache forms the backbone of Rosina. A component of Shiraz and a dash of Viognier contribute wonderful complexity. A juicy, mouthwatering Rosé with plenty of fruit and a touch of restrained sweetness, from grapes harvested early in the season to capture vibrancy.

A completely hand crafted rose, vintaged and matured on the Kalleske property. All vines are hand pruned and planted to sandy loam soils over deep red clay. Grapes are harvested to a schedule specifically tailored for the creation of a Rosé wine, as they begin to display vibrant refreshing qualities with crisp acidity and solid flavour intensity. Following the crush, juices remain in contact with skins for a few hours to infuse subtle hues prior to pressing. Juices are wild yeast vinified in a combination of fermenters and oak for added complexity. Following a spell of maturation on sedimentery lees, a small amount of unfermented juice is added to impart a touch of natural fruit sweetness.
Vivid rose petal colour. Lifted floral perfume, musk, strawberry and freshly crushed raspberry aromas. The juicy palate displays vibrant, fresh fruit characters with a balanced acidity complimented by restrained grape sweetness. A creamy textural richness adds depth and character to a deeply flavoursome Rose as it resolves on a generous lingering finish. Enjoy with slamon steak, weisswurst or vietnamese cuisine.
