Kaesler Grenache Barossa Valley the Fave 2006
This wine displays fruit characters such as green apples, limes and fresh floral notes. Should age well over the next 4-8 years. Lean with a lovely vibrant green edge and centre. Lemony citrus notes. Clean and crisp on the palate. Citrus and some stone fruit characters such as nectarines on the middle palate. Tightly structured in it’s youth, it should age well in the medium term (5-8 years). This wine is un-aoked to produce a fruit driven, classic style of Semillon.
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.
VERY nice Grenache-Shiraz-Mourvedre blend! Incredibly smooth, great fruit, leather, tar, pepper flavors swim around the mouth. Finish of black fruit and pepper. Excellent/Outstanding - 90 points.
A great Aussie GSM. Rich, smoky, and hot out of the bottle it mellowed to a smooth blend exhibiting balanced acid and fruit. Thick and delicious. Great value for $17.
Great value for the money.
