Kaesler’s top Shiraz cuvees begin with the 2007 Old Vine Shiraz, sourced from a 44 year old estate vineyard and aged for 18 months in French oak. Deep purple in color, the expressive nose offers up toast, smoked meat, game, lavender, and blueberry. Structured, firm, and a bit compact on the palate in the style of the vintage, it has attractive flavors but a more forward personality than its counterpart from 2004 and 2005. Drink it between 2012 and 2020.

93 Points - James Halliday

Politically correct, it is unfined and unfiltered. Its black fruits have a strong savoury component, but the tannins are ripe, the balance good; matured in Burgundain-coopered French oak (90% new).

Region

Situated in South Australia, 60 kilometres northwest of Adelaide, lies the Barossa Valley which has been producing wine since 1842 and these days is recognised as Australia’s quintessential wine region. The hot climate mixed with the ironstone and sandstone soil in the valley, makes excellent growing conditions for grapes and in particular, Shiraz (or Syrah) which classically is full bodied with earthy and spicy notes. Over the last 15 years there has also been an increased interest in the other red Rhone varietals Grenache and Mourvedre. The non-irrigated old vineyards on the cooler west side of the valley are the most treasured and provide fruit for Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds Grange among many other top-quality bottlings.
