Kaesler Old Bastard Shiraz 2018

$205.00

Colour: Ruby red, purple through to maroon

Nose: Ticking all the dark berry’s, Blackberry, Mulberry, Blueberry, Raspberry with hints of plum. Delightful layers of mocha and spice from the extra tight grain oak fills the glass.

Palate: In two words ‘mouth’ – ‘filling’. The brilliant 2018 vintage has delivered a timeless and generous Old Bastard. The palate opens with an abundance of bright dark berries and tight chalky tannins with layers of mocha, coffee and chocolate. As always, the wine is completely in balance. The finish is long and firm.

Winery Profile:
The Kaesler family were pioneers who settled in the Barossa Valley in the 1840s. In 1891 they bought a parcel of land and in 1893 planted their first vines.

In 1999, winemaker Reid Bosward seized the opportunity to become the head of the new Kaesler family when he and his partners bought Kaesler, becoming the third owners of this property. At this time, the Kaesler vineyards consisted of over 70% red wine vines, all 40 years of age or more.

Today, a 5 star James Halliday rated winery, Reid and winemaker Stephen Dew, with their distinct style and modest winemaking techniques, consistently produce wines rated over 90 points by industry peers and publications.
