Wine list

Kaesler The Bogan

2019

Eyes: Deep dark red to black with an amazing purple hue

Nose: Aromas of blackberry and white pepper with hints of spice, as you would expect from good use of oak

Mouth: 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.

Body: Full

Old Bastard

2018

Eyes: Ruby red, purple through to maroon

Nose: Ticking all the dark berry’s, Blackberry, Mulberry, Blueberry, Raspberry with hints of plum. Delightful layers of mocha and spice from the extra tight grain oak fills the glass.

Palate: In two words ‘mouth’ – ‘filling’. The brilliant 2018 vintage has delivered a timeless and generous Old Bastard. The palate opens with an abundance of bright dark berries and tight chalky tannins with layers of mocha, coffee and chocolate. As always, the wine is completely in balance. The finish is long and firm. The gift that keeps on giving.

Body: Full

Alte Reben Shiraz

2017

Eyes: Deep garnet

Nose: Ripe dark red and blacker spectrum of blackberry and plum. Kisses of cassis and framboise wafting high in the glass. Oak reveals itself as crème caramel, vanilla and sandalwood.

Mouth: Subtle but firm tannin, round and generous, stream all the way through and bulldoze their way to end of the palate. Acid is solid, bracing and highly structured to suit the tannin.

Body: This wine is in the old fashioned style, designed for the long haul. No stalky whole berry, lift or unripe palate structure here. Should drink well into the 2040’s.

Kaesler GSM

2017

Eyes: Garnet

Nose: Blue and black fruits of blueberries and blackcurrant, fresh violet florals on the nose

Mouth: Savoury notes and pepper spice, fresh rhubarb and fleshy fruit characters. Fine tannins and balanced acidity; length on the palate

Body: Medium


Kaesler Cabernet Sauvignon

2019

Barossa Valley is cooler than is generally believed and
a great climate for Cabernet. The thing with Barossa
Cabernet is that when it’s ready for harvest our winery
is full of Shiraz. This is when the winemakers beg our
viticulturalist to harvest one fermenter’s worth right in
the sweet spot. Barossa Valley Cabernet is always going
to be richer and juicer than some of our cooler climate
cousins, but this helps aid its drinkability in its youth.

Kaesler The Fave

2020

Eyes: Garnet / Rhubarb

Nose: Cherry, spicy and earthy notes. Aniseed characters

Mouth: Soft and generous medium bodied wine. With hints of cherry and herbal undertones of oregano

Body: Medium bodied

Old Vine Shiraz

2019

Nose: Brooding and alluring with kirsch lavender, vanilla, plums, blackberries and wild flowers

Mouth: Silky tannins on entry, with a vast array of red and blue fruits. Tight, assertive, with plenty of room for bottle development.

Body: Full

WOMS Cabernet Shiraz

2018

Eyes: Purple and crimson, with a dense centre and a youthful edge

Nose: Blackberries, mulberries and cherries with hints of charry oak

Mouth: Black cherries, vanilla and some leather characters on the palate. The fruit is solid and tightened by oak and tannin in its youth. With cellaring, the oak will lay down and the fruit will prevail. Good viscosity.

Body: Full


Barossa Valley, South Australia

The Barossa Valley is a renowned wine-producing region northeast of Adelaide, in South Australia. The area encompasses towns such as Tanunda, Angaston and Nuriootpa, and an array of high-profile wineries offering tours and cellar-door tastings. Shiraz grapes are the local speciality. The stone cottages and Lutheran churches throughout the region are testament to a 19th-century wave of German settlers.

Kaesler vineyard

Kaesler owns just over 37 hectares (92 acres) of vineyards in the Barossa Valley, the majority of which is old vine material planted in 1893, 1899, 1930 and in the 1960’s. Fruit is hand picked and hand pruned with irrigation kept to a minimum. Crop thinning is done in most years to reduce yields and maximise flavour with blocks kept separate until final blending.
