Kaesler The Bogan Shiraz 2017
Regular price MYR 293.00
Wine Region: Barossa Valley, Australia
Deep dark red to black with an amazing purple hue. Aromas of blackberry and white pepper with hints of spice, as you would expect from good use of oak. From the first mouthful it’s a flavour bomb, with its sweet black fruit in the front through to the seductive French oak on the very back of the palate. This, along with its silky tannins, should leave one very satisfied indeed.
About The Winery
The first owners of the Kaesler vineyards were Silesian pioneers who came to the Barossa Valley in the 1840s and took up 96 acres in 1891. By 1893 they had planted the entire acreage with Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro (Mourvedre) and White Hermitage vines. Some of the gnarled dry-grown Shiraz still remains and provides the backbone of the intense wines we produce.
Over time, the Kaeslers pulled vines to plant fruit trees and to keep horses and cows. The site now home to the Kaesler Cellar Door; the old brick horse stable now holds a private tasting room; the cow shed now the present restaurant, Kaesler Kitchen; Ernst Kaesler’s old house, now the Kaesler Cottages B&B.
The remaining vines mostly consisted of red and fortified varieties, some Grenache added in the 1930’s and more Shiraz planted in the 60’s and 70’s. These plantings accounting for some of the celebrated aged Shiraz we produce today.
