Grown to the frigid climes of Central Otago, the vines at Prophet's Rock were established 1999 to the most auspicious sites in the nether regions around the ancient goldfields of Bendigo Creek. Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence. Invigorated by the warmth of alluvial.. Bounty of bendigo goldfields»
Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography,.. Heirlooms of a hobart homestead»
Planted to the tranquil Shangri-La of a sun warmed slope in Yarra Valley, TarraWarra was established 1983 by the founders of the Sussan and Sportsgirl brands. Philanthropists and patrons of the arts, Mr and Mrs Besen, AO and AO respectively, took a highly aesthetic approach to the pursuit of viticulture. Healthy soils and happy fauna were the means to an end, good wine comes from a sound ecology, but great wine needs the inspiration of a holistic engagement with the arts. It is here at Healesville that habitues can savour the Sauvignon while immersing themselves amongst the work of our national masters. A costly collection of canvas by our merry Messrs Boyd..

Right next to the Merry Widow Inn at Glenrowan, infamous of Kelly gang folklore, Richard Bailey set up shop to service prospectors during the great Victorian gold rush of the 1860s. Rows of newly planted Shiraz soon followed and the Baileys released their first vintage in 1870. The region was ultimately infected by the terrible vine killing plague of the 1890s, a guarded blessing for Glenrowan, which elevated the quarantine status of its vitiated vineyards to a marque of the highest provenance. Baileys endure as one of the new world's most arcane and mythical wineworks, a small estate of historically significant parcels, producing limited vintages, defined by.. The bushranger's brew»

Shiraz is harvested in stages over the course of a fortnight, providing varying levels of sweetness and complexity for the finished wine. Grapes are vinified in open top fermenters and treated to a regimen of pumpovers twice daily. Several days after harvest, a portion of the free run juices are drained and fortified to arrest ferments and retain some natural sweetness. A combination of estate made brandy spirits, up to twenty years of age, are called upon to fortify the wine, achieving added complexity. Components are matured in well seasoned oak hogsheads for eighteen months, whereupon only the very best barrels are selected to be included in the final assemblage and bottling of this extra fine liqueur Shiraz.
Deep purple black colour. Enticing aromas of xmas cake and dark spiced berries, chocolates, perfume, marzipan and plum. These superb pure fruit flavours continue on the palate, luscious and rich, full bodied and intense. Essences of rancio and sweet tobacco leaf, marmalade and dried apricot, harmonious with moderate sweetness, balanced alcohol and velvety mouthfeel, a lingering finish completes a remarkable wine.

Kalleske
In South Australia's Barossa the Kalleske family have been farming and growing grapes since the 1800s near the village of Greenock

The Kalleske's are one of the region's leading grapegrowing families, providing world class Shiraz fruit for Penfolds Grange over many vintages, consistently growing some of the Barossa's best quality grapes. After five generations of growing grapes, winemaker and sixth generation family member Troy Kalleske established the Kalleske winery and created the Kalleske label. The winery is situated on the family estate where open top fermenters, basket press and barrel store ensure the vineyard realises its full potential as wine.

Kalleske

The vineyard is managed by Troy's father fifth generation grapegrower John Kalleske, who has over forty years experience tending the vineyard. The 120 acre vineyard is planted to Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro, Cabernet Sauvignon, Durif, Petit Verdot, Semillon, Chenin Blanc and Viognier. Vines vary in age with the oldest vineyard dating back to 1875 and an overall average vine age of about 50 years. The vineyard is low yielding and all grapes are grown organically.

Winemaker Troy Kalleske grew up amongst the vines and from a young age Troy was grape picking and pruning the vines planted by his great-great-great grandfather many years earlier. In 1999 Troy graduated with a Bachelor of Agricultural Science (Oenology) Degree from the University of Adelaide, achieving a distinction average. During his studies Troy was awarded no less than three scholarships, including the prestigious South Australian Wine and Brandy Industry Association Medal for Bachelor of Agricultural Science (Oenology)

Following university, Troy was a graduate winemaker with Southcorp where he gained valuable experience with stints at Seppelt Great Western, Lindemans, Penfolds and Seppeltsfield fortified winery. On completion of the graduate winemaker program, Troy continued winemaking for Southcorp at Penfolds, Barossa Valley. Troy has also completed a vintage with Veritas Winery and Miranda Wines, and in keeping with the increasingly global wine business he left Australia and gained valuable international knowledge of the industry as Harvest Enologist for Kendall-Jackson at Vinwood Cellars in Geyserville, Sonoma County.

Kalleske

In 2002, after 149 years of farming and grapegrowing by the Kalleske family, Troy took the next step and established the Kalleske winery. Troy is responsible for all winemaking, management and day-to-day operations of Kalleske Wines, while his father, John, continues to manage the family vineyard which he has looked after for over forty years.

There are five wines in the Kalleske range. All wines are estate grown and vinified with minimalistic winemaking techniques used to fully capture the essence of the vineyard allowing genuine hand made estate wines to be produced. Clarry's Barossa White is a blend of Semillon and Chenin Blanc and its partner Clarry's Barossa Red is a Grenache Shiraz blend. The Greenock Shiraz is a single vineyard wine, made from a superb Shiraz block on the Western edge of the Greenock Creek. The Old Vine Grenache is from a small dry-grown vineyard planted as bush vines on the Kalleske farm in 1935 and the Johann Georg Shiraz is made from a dry-grown vineyard planted on the farm in 1875.

"Kalleske Old Vine Grenache 2004… Like intoxicating reds? This Barossa whopper weighs in at 15.5 per cent, yet it carries that power well. The nose has jammy blackberry and black cherry preserve notes, plenty of sweet spice and a pleasant thread of old oak. The full palate is plush-smooth and ripely flavoured, finishing mellow and long. Four and a half stars. First Class, a wine of distinction!" -Ralph Kyte-Powell

"2005 Clarry’s Red… Top Gold and judged as the BEST RHONE BLEND at the 2006 Winewise Small Vigneron Awards… A deliciously mouthfilling red showing blackberry and plum confit characteristics with overtones of dark chocolate. The palate is very well balanced, with good structure, length and texture. Excellent value and highly Recommended!” -James Halliday
