Kalleske are one of our nation's most distinguished winegrower families, Barossa through and through, heirs to the tradition of Prussian pastoralists who established South Australia as one of the world's great viticultural precincts. The family Kalleske were the quiet achievers behind the stellar quality of fruit, at the heart of the most memorable vintages Penfolds Grange. Old sites and ancient vines, a tally of which have been branded under the Atze's Corner label, a regal range of stately Barossa wines, irresistibly underpriced in terms of provenance, excellence and sheer delight. Spectacular bouquets, redolent of freshness, fragrance and fruit, astonishingly balanced to perfection, meaty, mouth filling palates, layered with punnets of savoury ripe berries, all wrapped in the type of chewy, seductive tannins which can only be described as understatedly epic.

David Wynn introduced cardboard wine casks, flagons and the Airlesflo wine tap to the nation. He is best remembered for re packaging the Coonawarra estate which bears his name and which endures as one of Australia's icon brands. Wynn was a master of his craft and studied oenology at the world renowned Magill wineworks. An astute marketer and talented blender, he also had a keen eye for the land, investing in the ancient John Riddoch fruit colony and planting vines on a challenging site, high atop the lofty latitudes of Valley Eden. Mountadam Vineyards were built from the ground up, with a view to crafting a limited range of well structured, weighty wines, defined by fuller palates and saline, mineral savouryness. The legacy of Eden Valley vineyards planted by Wynn in the 1960s & 1970s, incorporating significant old rootstock and extinct European clones, remains a bespoke..

Bunches of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are de-stemmed and each berry is split, to ensure minimal degradation and encourage fresh, clean flavours. Merlot is crushed to fully expose the delicate flesh, for a more refined and elegant textural development. A fortnight of cool, gentle vinification on skins, allows for slower, more controlled extractions of tannin and flavour. Ferments are pumped over thrice daily over the course of a fortnight and judiciously backed off as the juices evolve into wine. Upon completion, batches are gently pressed into a selection of French oak barriques for ten months maturation, followed by clarification and the final assemblage.
Bright garnet colour. A compelling bouquet of vibrant cherry skin and dark berry characters , mintiness, dried herb and vanilla. A bold palate driven by blackberry and mocha oak, fleshy plum sweetness followed by a herbal savoury length. The tannins are fine grained, almost silky in texture, in fine balance before a dark chocolate allspice finish. Match with lamb, steak or eggplant, a superb accompaniement to rare, gamey duck.
