Description

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. The Kaesler vineyards were owned and operated by the Kaesler family from 1893 to 1986. In 1999, winemaker Reid Bosward seized the opportunity to become the head of the new Kaesler family when he and his partners bought Kaesler, becoming the third owners of this property. At this time, the Kaesler vineyards consisted of over 70% red wine vines, all 40 years of age or more.

TASTING NOTES

Light red cherry in appearance. Blackberry and blackcurrant on the nose with a hint of black pepper. The emphasis on Grenache and Mourvedre in the blend adds redcurrant notes and smoother velvety tannins than the usual Barossa “GSM” offering.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Perfect with barbecued red meats (steak and lamb) or with Italian tomato-based pasta and pizza
