Kalleske Wines in Charity Auction
Troy Kalleske of Kalleske Wines has asked Wickman's Fine Wine Auctions to auction off 12 bottles and 2 signed magnums of his 2003 Greenock Shiraz with all proceeds donated equally between the Asian Tsunami appeal and the South Australian Eyre Peninsula Fire appeal. The next auction will feature these wines in a special CHARITY category with all bids starting at $1, no reserves and no commissions to pay. You simply pay for any shipping and insurance from the winery.

Robert Parker gave the 2003 Grennock shiraz 96-100 points in the Wine Advocate #155 and described it as A barrel sample of the 2003 Greenock Shiraz appears to be a virtually perfect wine.

This is a pretty special opportunity folks. There are very few of the magnums available, and I'm sure even fewer have been signed. One has a special place in my cellar.
