Kalleske Clarry's GSM 2018

Kalleske Clarry's GSM 2018 beautiful fruit purity

Tasting Notes

Kalleske’s Clarry’s is a GSM blend that was sourced from the family’s organically grown vineyards. To help maintain the wine’s freshness and purity, the wine was aged in older, neutral oak hogsheads for four months. The color has an opaque deep purple core that leads into a nose that features engaging dark red fruits of raspberry and plum, with some light earth and spice tones adding nuance and complexity. Medium fuller bodied, this has good depth and richness to the juicy dark red fruits with an under current of enlivening acidity and beautifully integrated tannins. Bright and juicy, the finish accentuates the wine’s freshness with an aftertaste of lightly spiced dark red fruit, while polished tannins bring this to a lovely conclusion. Drinking impressively now this should show well over the next 3-4 years.


Winemaker Notes

The 2018 Clarry’s is a blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro, with all grapes from the Kalleske’s organic farm. The Grenache is from low-yielding sandy soils from vines dating back to the 1940s, while the Shiraz and Mataro are sourced from a number of select blocks on the Kalleske estate with soil generally consisting of shallow, sandy loam over superb deep red clay and limestone, providing ideal conditions for these vines.

Clarry’s GSM 2018 is vivid purple in colour. Amazingly lifted and bright, there are bountiful aromatics of dark plum, violet, ripe raspberry, musk, sarsaparilla, cinnamon and a touch of dried herbs. The palate is generous and mouth-filling. It is well rounded with lavish flavours of ripe berries, dark fruits and a trace of choc mint. There are engaging fine natural tannins giving a seamless and elegant structure. An alluring radiance of fruit purity prevails throughout, with limited seasoned barrel maturation adding complexity and softness. Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro all work in harmony together delivering a layered wine of ample flavour, splendid structure and a lingering finish. Clarry’s is an approachable, fruit-driven and opulent GSM that is best enjoyed now or over the next five years.
