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. Aspirants of undiscovered classics, suitors of the Grand Barossa Cru, every red wine enthusiast in the country should be availing themselves immediately, call a confederate and confer, over a case or two of the softly spoken superlatives which dwell on Atze's Corner... Small batches of the barossa's very best»

Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Barossa South Australia
Only ever made in the finest vintage years, the backbone of this substantive Shiraz is exceptional old vine fruit from a qabal of famed, gnarled and dry grown Barossa vineyards at Ebenezer. Bishop is assembled from components which are up front and generous, showing animated, youthful characters, as opposed to the more restrained and structured components of the sibling Glaetzers. These old veterans are young at heart, a coterie of old, very old and ancient blocks, up to a hundred and thirty years of age, are called upon to make a contribution towards the Bishop.

Bishop is the maiden name of the estate matriarch. The Bishops hail from Mount Gambier, whence Judith's mother was the first female mayor in Australian political history. From vines up to 120 years of age and averaging 60, grown to the Glaetzer estate's Ebenezer parcels, vinified and assembled into the final wine alongside batches of very old vine fruit from distinguished growers. Vinified in 1½ to 2 tonne open fermenters, hand plunged two to three times daily. Extended maceration achieves good tannin development which makes the wine soft and approachable. Selected batches are treated to barrel fermentation, followed by sixteen months in a high proportion of new French oak hogsheads.
Deep garnet colour. Aromas of liquorice, violets and clove, mulberries and cassis. Opulent flavours on the palate, dark fruits and freshly cut plum are beautifully balanced by firm, velvety tannins from ageing in French and American oak. Refinement, elegance and solid structure, Bishop is rich voluptuous and mouth filling, with spicey fruit characters and a long elegant finish.
