The 120 acre vineyard is planted to Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro, Cabernet Sauvignon, Durif, Petit Verdot, Semillon, Chenin Blanc and Viognier. Vines vary in age with the oldest vineyard dating back to 1875 and an overall average vine age of about 50 years. The vineyard is low yielding and all grapes are grown organically.

Winemaker Troy Kalleske grew up amongst the vines and from a young age Troy was grape picking and pruning the vines planted by his great-great-great grandfather many years earlier. In 1999 Troy graduated with a Bachelor of Agricultural Science (Oenology) Degree from the University of Adelaide, achieving a distinction average. During his studies Troy was awarded no less than three scholarships, including the prestigious South Australian Wine and Brandy Industry Association Medal for Bachelor of Agricultural Science (Oenology)

Following university, Troy was a graduate winemaker with Southcorp where he gained valuable experience with stints at Seppelt Great Western, Lindemans, Penfolds and Seppeltsfield fortified winery. On completion of the graduate winemaker program, Troy continued winemaking for Southcorp at Penfolds, Barossa Valley. Troy has also completed a vintage with Veritas Winery and Miranda Wines, and in keeping with the increasingly global wine business he left Australia and gained valuable international knowledge of the industry as Harvest Enologist for Kendall-Jackson at Vinwood Cellars in Geyserville, Sonoma County.

In 2002, after 149 years of farming and grapegrowing by the Kalleske family, Troy took the next step and established the Kalleske winery. Troy is responsible for all winemaking, management and day-to-day operations of Kalleske Wines, while his father, John, continues to manage the family vineyard which he has looked after for over forty years.

There are five wines in the Kalleske range. All wines are estate grown and vinified with minimalistic winemaking techniques used to fully capture the essence of the vineyard allowing genuine hand made estate wines to be produced. Clarry's Barossa White is a blend of Semillon and Chenin Blanc and its partner Clarry's Barossa Red is a Grenache Shiraz blend. The Greenock Shiraz is a single vineyard wine, made from a superb Shiraz block on the Western edge of the Greenock Creek. The Old Vine Grenache is from a small dry-grown vineyard planted as bush vines on the Kalleske farm in 1935 and the Johann Georg Shiraz is made from a dry-grown vineyard planted on the farm in 1875.

"Kalleske Old Vine Grenache 2004… Like intoxicating reds? This Barossa whopper weighs in at 15.5 per cent, yet it carries that power well. The nose has jammy blackberry and black cherry preserve notes, plenty of sweet spice and a pleasant thread of old oak. The full palate is plush-smooth and ripely flavoured, finishing mellow and long. Four and a half stars. First Class, a wine of distinction!" -Ralph Kyte-Powell

"2005 Clarry’s Red… Top Gold and judged as the BEST RHONE BLEND at the 2006 Winewise Small Vigneron Awards… A deliciously mouthfilling red showing blackberry and plum confit characteristics with overtones of dark chocolate. The palate is very well balanced, with good structure, length and texture. Excellent value and highly Recommended!” -James Halliday
