NASHWAUK BEACON SHIRAZ 2010

Wine Region: Barossa Valley, Australia

Grape: Shiraz

Tasting Notes

Beacon Shiraz is a single vineyard wine, hand-picked from Block 12 planted in 1974. Dark, almost black in colour. Compact and alluring aromas of star anise, chocolate and red fruits are tightly woven and impossible to pick apart. wine with immense structure and vinosity, its iron clad exterior is indicative of its potential to age. Bitter chocolate and dark fruits. Great depth and structure, full bodied.

About the Winery

Nashwauk is owned and managed by Kaesler Wines, Barossa Valley. Stephen Dew and Reid Bosward are the winemakers. Kaesler’s first wine made outside its Barossa Valley home maintains its winemakers’ criteria using estate grown fruit of predominantly old vine plantings. The search to find the right vineyard took some time before a 20 ha property on Neill Road in McLaren Vale, Seaview sub region was bought in 2005. The 2006 vintage release is Nashwauk’s market debut. Nashwauk wines are made in small quantities (volumes outlined on wine labels) and the brand will probably peak at about 5000 dozen a year.
