Kaesler Shiraz Barossa Valley Old Bastard 2009
Kaesler is a privately owned wine company that produces estate grown wines from vineyards as old as 1893. The Kaesler family were pioneers who settled in the Barossa Valley in the 1840’s. In 1891 they bought a parcel of land and in 1893 planted their first vines. Today Kaesler wines are made from these ancient, dry grown vineyards, by the third owners of this magnificent property.

As good as the preceding wines may be, they pale in the shadow of the 2005 Shiraz "Old Bastard," sourced from a 114-year-old vineyard, and which spent 22 months in new and one-year-old French oak.

Deep, bright ruby. Flamboyantly ripe aromas of singed blackberry, crème de cassis, peppered bacon, mocha, dried rose and oak spices, plus an exotic note of blood orange. Rich, velvety and dense, with sweet, powerful flavors of black currant, fruitcake, fudge, vanilla and black olive, all lifted by a floral top note. Finishes long and sweet, with fully enveloped tannins.
Saturated deep ruby to the rim. Flamboyantly ripe aromas of blackberry liqueur, chocolate and eucalyptus. Rich, pliant and thick, with brooding flavors of blackberry, blueberry, chocolate and mocha. Offers superb palate presence. A very fat wine that finishes surprisingly bright, with huge but suave tannins and a note of raspberry.
Big but graceful. Offers a plush mouthful of ripe cherry, blackberry, pomegranate and cardamom, mingling beautifully on the rich, expressive finish. The tannins are beautifully integrated and refined, but definitely worth cellaring to soften. Shiraz. Best from 2010 through 2020.
A big but remarkably elegant wine, focusing its pure blueberry, blackberry and plum flavors on a laser beam of finely balanced tannins and judicious acidity, persisting on the finish with glints of white pepper, licorice and coffee. Serious stuff that begs for cellar time. Best from 2010 to 2025.
