Kaesler 'The Bogan' Shiraz
The Kaesler family were pioneers who settled in the Barossa Valley in the 1840s. In 1891 they bought a parcel of land and in 1893 planted their first vines. 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 just the third owners of the property.
"From estate shiraz vines planted 1899 and 1965, matured in French oak (25% new) for 15 months. Bright, deep colour; this is a high class wine whether viewed from the prism of the bouquet, the palate or the lingering aftertaste, all in such perfect balance that the wine steps lightly in its medium-bodied persona."
