Introducing the latest release from Kalleske!

2023 Congruous
Chenin Blanc & Semillon

Certified Organic
Certified Biodynamic

The aroma abounds with ripe pear, butterscotch, nutty oak, brioche pastry, flint, and ginger spice. The palate is plush, medium in body. Ripe white stone fruits are complimented with generous but integrated oak. A creamy texture is nicely balanced with a mineral edge and light phenolics adding a cleansing gentle grip. The soft natural acidity hides in the back, letting the textural layers shine

Kalleske Congruous is from a Chenin Blanc vineyard and Semillon vineyard, planted on the Kalleske property at Moppa in 1988 and 1980 respectively. The vines are low yielding and soil is shallow sand with clay subsoil.

The Semillon grapes were harvested on March 14th and the Chenin Blanc was harvested March 30th. Each lot was destemmed, crushed, and pressed. The free-run juice was utilised for other wines, whilst the pressings each went to a separate tank for cold stabulation. Stabulation involved keeping the whole juice on the juice bottoms/lees for 9 days at a cold temperature and daily mixing to extract the good compounds contributing to aroma and mouthfeel.
The juice then underwent wild yeast fermentation after which two thirds was filled to new Hungarian oak and the balance remained in stainless steel tanks. The entire wine went through natural malolactic fermentation and barrel lees stirring was employed adding further texture.

After 8 months maturation the wine was blended and bottled.
