The 2006 Shiraz (65%)-Cabernet Sauvignon (35%) WOMS , an acronym for Weapon of Mass Seduction, sourced from vines ranging in age from 45 to 109 years, and aged for 18 months in new and one year French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it reveals a sexy perfume of pain grille, underbrush, pencil lead, black currant, and blueberry. Full-bodied on the palate, it demands 4-6 years of cellaring to reveal its full potential. The tannins are ripe and there are tons of spicy fruit so it should provide satisfying drinking from 2013 to 2026.
The Kaesler Vineyards were established in 1893. The family, sprung from Silesian pioneers who came to the Barossa Valley in the 1840s, and took up 96 acres in 1891. They cleared the scrub and planted out the entire holding with Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro (Mourvedre) and White Hermitage vines.
In 1999, renowned Australian winemaker Reid Bosward bought Kaesler and set about developing its portfolio, focusing in particular on its single vineyard wines. Many of Kaesler’s vineyards contained gnarled, dry-grown shiraz vines dating back to 1893 - these vines are some of the largest holdings of nineteenth century plantings in the world and provide the backbone of the intense wines they produce today.
Kaesler produces bold estate wines representative of the Barossa Valley and are best known for their multi award winning ‘Old Bastard Shiraz’ listed as ‘Outstanding’ in the internationally regarded Langton’s Classification Guide.
