Kaesler Grenache Barossa Valley the Fave 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"91-WS Smooth and polished, with a lovely core of black cherry and currant fruit, dripping with dark chocolate and smoky spice notes as the finish goes on. Impressive for its balance and length. Drink now through 2014. Smart Buy."" 90-RP ""The 2004 GSM Stonehorse (68% Grenache from 70-year-old vines, 27% Shiraz from 40-year-old vines, and 5% Mourvedre from 7-year-old vines) was aged 12 months in old French and American wood. Revealing a Gigondas / Chateauneuf du Pape-like personality, it is a tasty, medium-bodied red offering loads of pepper, earth, and garrigue notes intertwined with black cherries, blueberries, plums, and a hint of fennel. This complex, ripe, round 2004 should drink well for 3-5 years."" """

Kaesler:
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.

Firm and dry all the way through; high glycerol and alcohol, barely cuts through the savory tannin. Finishes with typical Kaesler qualities of grainy tannins and some blackberry and earthy flavors.

Grenache is an awesome grape and is the back bone of so many blended wines around the world. Occasionally at Kaesler it has a year when it can present as a stand alone wine. We have several Grenache vineyards that really perform on their own from time to time, but the Fave seems to excel more years than not. The 2004 vintage was Grenache Heaven. A great Shiraz growing season was nearly torn apart by a spate of hot weather in February; the older Grenache vineyards simply laughed it off and relished the conditions.
