NASHWAUK WRECKED SHIRAZ 2010

Tasting Notes

Dark cherry. Dark black fruits, coffee and some cloves. Concentrated blueberry, blackberry and plum with a twist of spice to help define and accentuate the fruit. Silky tannins and sweet fruit complete a sumptuous palate.

Ratings

James Halliday 93/100 - Fruit was selected from three separate blocks on the Nashwauk property, vine age 20 and 40 year old. These three blocks have been selected to make this reserve Shiraz since 2006.

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.
