Kalleske 2019 Clarry's GSM, named for Clarence "Clarry" Kalleske, who farmed the Kalleske vineyards from the late 1920s until his retirement in the 1990s, is a classic GSM blend sourced entirely from the estate's certified organic vineyard in the Barossa Valley in South Australia. The aromas burstss with dark rose perfume, ripe cherries, licorice, sarsaparilla, and musk. The juicy palate is loaded with dense flavors of vivid red and black fruits. It is full and richly flavored, round and harmonious, but with natural chalky tannins adding structure and backbone. Concise maturation in seasoned barrels has added complexity whilst preserving the fruit purity. Clarry's is an approachable, fruit-driven, and opulent GSM that is best enjoyed now or over the next five years.
