A single vineyard Chenin Blanc, sourced entirely from mature vines on the Kalleske farm, wild fermented and partially barrel matured to achieve an articulately varietal yet engagingly complex wine. Florentine gets her name from Caroline Florentine Kalleske, the first daughter of Johann Georg Kalleske who migrated to Australia from Prussia in 1838. Florentine is a true hand crafted wine that's been grown, vintaged and matured on the Kalleske estate farm, near the hamlet of Greenock in northwest Barossa.
Florentine is from a single block of Chenin Blanc on the Kalleske property, which was planted in 1988. The vines are low yielding, the soil is shallow sand with clay subsoil. Grapes are harvested throughout the cool of night and whole bunch pressed for a cold settling prior to racking. The juices are completely wild indigenous yeast vinified, half is treated to a mix of French and Hungarian oak hogsheads, the balance is sent to fermenters. A course of partial lees stirring is employed upon completion of ferments for added texture and complexity. The wine final wine is assembled and bottled after several months of barrel age. Florentine is 100% Australian Certified Organic.
TASTING NOTES
Pale straw hue. Intriguing nose of fresh apple, cut hay, honeysuckle, quince and a hint of almond. Medium bodied with intense fresh fruit supported by subtle barrel ferment characters. Well structured with crisp acid balanced by a lightly creamy texture and hint of minerality. Fresh finish and persistent length completes a complex and classy wine.
