VINEYARD Kalleske JMK Shiraz VP is sourced from select blocks of the Kalleske vineyard, including the renowned ‘Greenock’ block. The vineyard blocks consists of shallow, sandy loam soil over superb deep red clay and limestone, providing ideal conditions for Shiraz vines.
WINEMAKING;The grapes were harvested on March 26th and then fermented in an open top fermenter with hand pump-overs twice a day. Sweetness and flavours of the fermenting grapes were closely monitored and when at desired levels, at five days after harvest, grape spirit was added, arresting the fermentation to retain some natural grape sweetness. A combination of young and old (up to 22 years) brandy spirit was used to fortify the wine, ensuring added complexity. Following fortification, the wine was matured in well seasoned hogsheads for six months. At this time, only the very best barrels were selected to be included in the bottling of this liqueur Shiraz.
