Only 110 dozen bottles were produced of this world-class single vineyard Grenache. The grapes were planted in 1962 by Albert and Ian Kalleske and yields are kept low—key to high-quality Grenache. Laughing Jack always mature this wine exclusively in older French puncheons to preserve the texture and minerality in the wine.

The 2018 is another win for Shawn and his family. A medium deep and bright cherry red, this has classic raspberry fruit shot through with some fennel and sage, while the palate is deftly concentrated with superb texture and mouthfeel whilst remaining light on its feet at the same time. Deceptively delicious now, there is more than enough fruit and velvety persistent tannins to ensure a long life ahead.

Reviews

"Hand picked, basket pressed and matured 16 months in French oak puncheons. Shawn Kalleske’s attentive, hand-made approach brings the sensitivity to let grenache shine. Structured, savoury and serious, understated berry fruits are accented by tomato and sage, with a core of sweet fruit lingering long through well-gauged dark chocolate French oak and a beautiful splay of fine, confident tannins. Proper grenache, with an exciting future before it."
