Albert’s Block Shiraz

$30.00 inc. GST

Tasting Notes:

2014 – Clone 1654, crushed/destemmed, some whole berries, open-fermented, cultured yeast, 10-14 days on skins, 18 months in French and American oak (10-15% new). Licorice and pepper are unexpected (semi) leaders of the fragrant pack. This intro and the supple tannins on the finish cause you to walk straight past the alcohol. It’s not broken and doesn’t need fixing. Only 100 dozen made, more’s the pity

SKU: AlbertBlock Category:


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.
