Kalleske, Old Vine, Grenache, Barossa Valley 2015
The power is evident from the first sniff. Syrupy and dense concentrated raspberry with cola, pencils, fresh herbs and baked orange citrus. Full raspberry assault with flavour level intensity 9.5/10 before those herbs and smokey echoes. Gravelly tannins roll on like the second trailer of a B-double. Finishes with warmth from the alcohol, but not too hot. One for the hedonists.
