2018 Kalleske Rosina Rosé
|Region||Barossa Valley, SA|
|Status||Certified Organic/Biodynamic with Australian Certified Organic (ACO)|
The Kalleske family have been farming and growing grapes since 1853 near the village of Greenock. In 2004, after six generations of growing grapes, winemaker and seventh generation family member, Troy Kalleske, together with his brother Tony, established the Kalleske winery and made the first ‘Kalleske’ wine. Troy and Tony’s parents, John and Lorraine, and brother, Kym, manage the vineyard. John has over forty years experience tending the vineyard. Vines vary in age with the oldest remaining vineyard dating back to 1875 and an overall average vine age of about 50 years. The vineyard is low yielding with grapes grown organically and biodynamically; the winery is also certified biodynamic and organic. All Kalleske wines are estate grown and vinified with minimalist winemaking techniques used to fully capture the essence of the vineyard allowing genuine handmade estate wines to be produced.

|Wine||Anna ‘Rosina’, together with her husband Karl Heinrich ‘Eduard’ Kalleske farmed our vineyard from 1853 until the 1880s. They were pioneers on our property and in the district of Greenock. This wine pays tribute to their accomplishments. Fresh and juicy with flavours of watermelon and crunchy|
red berries. Flavoursome and zesty, a hint of restrained grape sweetness adds harmony and intensity. There is also a touch of creaminess adding texture.
|Tasting Note||Red berry - Watermelon - Crunchy|
