Six Generations of Barossa Experience

watch thisSmall Batch Wines Of The Barossa Valley.

Atze’s Corner vigneron Andy Kalleske is the sixth successive generation of his family to be involved in grapegrowing and winemaking in the Australia’s iconic Barossa Valley. With that experience comes the knowledge of where the best grapes grow and how to nurture the fragile old vines to give of their best.

The cornerstone of this artisan winery lies in several amazing vineyards which are tended by Andy’s parents Barb and John Kalleske. Shiraz vines planted in 1912 and 1951 adjacent to the winery, a stone’s throw east of Nuriootpa on the Barossa’s valley floor and close by at Ebenezer, a sub-region of the Barossa renowned for its Shiraz wines.

Hand-selected grapes from these and other family-owned vines are the key to Atze’s Corner wines.

Minimal intervention is Andy’s catchcry in the winery: to extract colour, flavour and tannins as gently as is possible small-batch, open fermenters are used along with hand-plunging. Wines are matured in oak barrel before bottling and further cellaring prior to release. Minimal filtering and fining are the trademarks of this unobtrusive approach.

The result of this hands-off approach is a range of premium reds that showcases the best of the Kalleske family’s vineyards – from the elegant and vibrant The Renegade to the complex and Eddies Old Vine Shiraz.
