Tasting Notes:

2012 – This is a delicate and fresh wine with a fragrant nose with a hint of lightly toasted oak.  Soft and smooth with red fruits and dark cherries on the palate; fine tannins and a great acid structure give this mid-full bodied wine great balance.  A lovely drink and a superb partner to many dishes… I anticipate that over the next 6 years with careful cellaring it will gain even more complexity.

2013 – Albert’s Block has a light toasty oak on the nose, before all that dark berried fruit comes to the fore with dark cherries and plums, along with a touch of creamy vanilla.  The palate is round and full; displaying plums, dark cherries and aniseed.  Fine tannins and some nice acid give the wine solid structure to ensure that it will evolve with time in the cellar.

Product Description

Named in honour of Suz’s Pop and Father, Carl Albert Kalleske and John Albert Kalleske.

Small batches of fruit was sourced from various blocks on the Jaensches Vineyard,  all parcels were fermented in open fermenters as whole berries.  Hand plunged twice a day for a period of about 10 days before getting pressed in the basket press. The wine was then left to go through malo in a combination of French and American oak; and left on lees for 6 months, to provide texture and mouth-feel in the finished wine.  The wine was then racked and returned back to barrels, where it was matured for a total of 18 months before being bottled, unfined and unfiltered.
