Kalleske CCCLXV Durif 2017

From a certified biodynamic, single vineyard. 365 days on skins (hence the naming). No oak.

Kalleske, CCCLXV, Durif, Barossa Valley, 2017

 

Opaque. Syrupy. Tunnel vision: focused, intense, concentrated, inky blood of octopus.  Pillowy red fruit over dark herbal base layers. Grinding fruit tannins with a raisined intent. Still somehow to manages to finish with delicate foot print, like on sand.

RRP: $26
Alc: 16%
Rating: 17.75/20
