Kaesler Stonehorse Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre 2015

Special Price $22.00 Regular Price $25.00
Just estate grown fruits here in gloriously expressive form, showing the benefit of 5 years cellaring. It’s boldly flavoured, and moderately tanninc-dry with enough acid to keep things on the lively side (as opposed to a dated re-run of weekend at Bernies). Dark fruits, marzipan, spice, velvety texture and even a suggestion of umami here.

The Kaesler family arrived in the Barossa Valley from Sliesia in the 1840s. They bought land in the Barossa in 1891 and spent 2 years furiously planting, after which time they had 96 acres planted to Grenache, Shiraz, Marato and a few white varieties. 21 Years ago Reid Bosward and a few mates bought the farm from the Kaesler family... benefitting from an estate where the youngest red vines were at least 40 years of age. The wines are still produced entirely from the estate grown vines. Reid and co also own wineries and brands elsewhere in Australia including the Clare Valley, McLaren Vale and the legendary Yarra Yering winery. Kaesler is an exceptional winery unsurprisingly rated 5 red stars by James Halliday, which is his highest possible rating.

Just 60km northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine regions. Warm and dry, it is renowned for producing the distinctive Barossa Shiraz, a full-bodied red with notes of chocolate and spice. The valleys and sloping hills create several temperature ranges. But in summer, take it from us: it's just plain hot. The soils range from clay and loam in the cooler areas to the classically South Australian sand and red-brown loam in the valleys. Irrigation is often required, but with water supply an increasing problem, many growers are practicing dryland farming, relying on what falls from the sky and clings from night fog. Coupl ...

Just 60km northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine regions.

The soils range from clay and loam in the cooler areas to the classically South Australian sand and red-brown loam in the valleys. Irrigation is often required, but with water supply an increasing problem, many growers are practicing dryland farming, relying on what falls from the sky and clings from night fog. Couple this with the number of very old vines in the region (which produce limited quantities of grapes), and the result is fruit with deeply concentrated flavour which quickly ripen. A great foundation for some of the world's most acclaimed reds.
