Kaesler Uvaggio Sangiovese-Grenache 2015


A medium garnet colour, the nose is primarily plums up front from the Sangiovese and Shiraz. Grenache offers lifted cherry, raspberry and floral aromatics. Dried herb, tarragon, earthy twist from the Sangiovese. Medium bodied and Savoury in the mouth. Grenache provides the frame work for the savoury tannin of the Sangiovese. Both of these varieties lead well with the acid & tannin driving the structure. Shiraz embellishes the mid palate with a touch of sweetness and fullness but not enough to distract from Italian intention of the wine.

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.
