Kaesler Old Bastard Shiraz 2016

Sold out
$230.00

Kaesler Old Bastard Shiraz 2016 completes this vineyard’s 123rd orbit of the sun. With cuttings taken from vines delivered to Australia before Phylloxera decimated Europe, this vine, and many like it in the Barossa, help re-define the term “old world”. We are the old world. This vineyard was on the brink of death, when Kaesler acquired it in 1999. It is testament to just how important and integral the hand of man is in viticulture and the winemaking process. Without their care it would surely have been lost.

This wine is dark purple red, with a garnet edge. Fresh and fruit driven with blackberries, raspberries and blueberries. Some cherry notes on the nose. A combination of forest fruits with blackberries and mulberries. Savoury, aromatic spices of anise and nutmeg, with some coffee and chocolate notes. Silky, delicate tannins; good acidity and well balanced.
