New Alternate Varietal Wine Releases

We have three new cracking release wines available via our order page; two fan-favourites in the Buckboard Durif and Dodger Tempranillo plus a brand new wine to join the Kalleske line-up the Fordson Zinfandel. All of which we are extremely happy with.

These single vineyard wines are from the spectacular 2012 vintage, and as with all our wines they are grown, vintaged and matured on our Kalleske estate under organic/biodynamic principals.

2012 Dodger Tempranillo
Dodger Tempranillo 2012 is deep red in colour. The aroma displays interesting complexity with sweet and savoury nuances of dark cherry, spice, almond, herbs, blackcurrant, tobacco and a hint of earth. These sweet and savoury characters continue to the medium bodied palate. Chewy but finely integrated tannins balance the wild fruit flavours. The wine is well structured and very harmonious. A lingering savoury finish completes a varietally true and very flavoursome Tempranillo. Dodger can be enjoyed now or over the next eight years.

2012 Fordson Zinfandel (inaugural wine) 
Fordson Zinfandel 2012 is magenta-red in colour. The bouquet is lifted with aromas of wild berries, briar, anise, rhubarb, spice and fruit cake. The palate is round and smooth with flavours of red and black fruits. Tannins are velvety giving an overall seamless structure to the wine. Maturation in seasoned barrels has added subtle oak complexity while preserving the fruit character. Medium to full-bodied in weight this is a harmonious wine that finishes with very good length. Approachable and fruit forward, Fordson Zinfandel can be enjoyed now or over the next five years.

2012 Buckboard Durif
Buckboard Durif 2012 is inky black in colour. Emanating from the glass are intense varietal aromas of fruit cake, black cherry, dark rose perfume, licorice, violet, cinnamon, Turkish delight and chocolate. These enticing dark fruit flavours extend to the rich full-bodied palate. This is a big and powerful wine with an abundance of dark fruit intensity. Very mouth-filling, the solid fruit is balanced with engaging natural chalky tannins that are prominent but well integrated. Subtle oak barrel maturation has added further character to this bountiful wine. Buckboard displays great power and complexity but importantly is dominated by strong fruit purity. A generous lingering finish completes this wine. This is a compelling and seductive Barossa Durif that can be enjoyed now or over the next decade.
