Kaesler Avignon Gsm 2003
Good deep red. Musky, reduced aromas of raspberry and tree bark. Sweetly spicy but a bit youthfully dry-edged, with hints of redcurrant and pepper. Still reduced but finishes with good persistence.Add winemaker's notes
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.

Good deep red. Musky, reduced aromas of raspberry and tree bark. Sweetly spicy but a bit youthfully dry-edged, with hints of redcurrant and pepper. Still reduced but finishes with good persistence.
The 2003 Stonehorse GSM (55% Grenache from 70-year-old vines, 37% Shiraz from 40-year-old vines, and 8% Mourvedre from 7-year-old vines) was aged in old French and American oak for 12 months prior to bottling. Reminiscent of a southern Cotes du Rhone blended with a Bandol, it exhibits notes of tree bark, earth, spice bark, pepper, and dusty red as well as black fruits in a distinctively earthy, spicy style. It should drink well for 5ndash;6 years.
