Drop, Chop & Two Smoking Barrels
Presented by Kalleske Wines
The vintage festival has rolled around again and it’s time to get fired up for the Kalleske Drop, Chop and Two Smoking Barrels. On the menu we have barrel wood-fired organic lamb from the Kalleske estate, accompanied with traditional Prussian sides and salads, which wouldn't be complete without Lorraine Kalleske's famous Rote Grütze dessert with fresh cream. Food will be available from 11am – 3pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday, and from 11am – 8pm on Friday and Saturday. Come and stay for a relaxed afternoon of live acoustic music in our Cellar Door. Wine by the glass and bottle will be available all day from 10am. It is an outdoor event, so if the weather is cool please dress accordingly.

Zeitgeist: the spirit of the time; general trend or characteristic of a particular period in time.
Zeitgeist Shiraz is a diverse selection of Shiraz from Kalleske farm, untouched by time, oak or non-grape additives, capturing the spirit and character of vintage 2014.
"Vibrant in colour with intense dense purple and black. The aromatics are vivid and perfumed with plenty of bright primary fruits. There are characters of plum, violet, freshly crushed blackberries, dark cherry, a hint of licorice, musk and sweet spice." - Troy Kalleske (winemaker)
