Kaesler Concordis 2014 Magnum
Wine Region: Barossa Valley, Australia
Deep crimson red with a purple hue. Aromas of bright blackberry overlaying hints of potpourri, Indian spices, and fresh woody herbs. Bright and energetic from the get go, it has buoyancy and pops through the palate, accentuated by bright notes of fresh blackberry, plums and boysenberry. Has a richness and depth through the mid palate as the wine builds momentum. This is an interesting wine texturally as a result of the interplay between the chalky whole bunch character, the bold fruit tannin and the grainy oak tannins. Extended lees contact provides a nice glossy, creamy component. Acid is folded nicely through the profile sitting slightly forward and providing freshness and vibrancy. This wine is incredibly long through the palate and is laced with complexing notes of potpourri, smoked meats and coal dust.
About The Winery
CONCORDIS is a collaborative winemaking project that unites Barossa Valley producers, Kaesler Wines, Seppeltsfield Winery, Torbreck Vintners, and Two Hands Wines to create a unique cuvée from one tonne of their finest Shiraz grapes each vintage.
The purpose of the initiative is to give back to the region that has been so supportive of the four wineries, with the aim to raise more than $700,000 over the initial four years with all proceeds going to a perpetual education fund through Foundation Barossa.
The fund will then provide ongoing financial support and training opportunities in cellar operations and viticulture for financially disadvantaged, local young people, through two-year traineeships being offered at each of the wineries.
With only 1,600 magnums made annually, CONCORDIS is the perfect collector’s item.
