Kalleske Merchant Zeitgeist ShirazKalleske Merchant
ORIGIN: Australia (Barossa Valley)
GRAPE VARIETAL: Shiraz (certified biodynamic grapes; no added sulphites)
Bright primary fruits abound. There is ripe plum, violet florals and crushed blackberry. Milk chocolate and clove spice are also evident, adding complexity to the vivid fruits. The pure fruits from the aroma flourish throughout the palate. Whilst juicy,there is also a round softness to the wine adding a lightly creamy texture to balance the primal fruits and finely structured natural tannins.
A strikingly complex wine for the age, Zeitgeist is enjoyable now with its primal characters but is powered to cellar well for many years to come.
Recommended Food Pairing: Grilled and BBQ meats; well-marinaded/flavoured roast chicken, duck, turkey; mushroom soups; Asian curries and stir fries; burgers and fries; soft or creamy cheeses and semi-hard cheese; grilled root vegetables and mushrooms.
