Kaesler Grenache Barossa Valley the Fave 2008

Member Review by RPerro:

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.

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.

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.

Color is a lighter ruby. Nose is redolent of strawberries, with an odd cinnamon aroma...almost a candied smell. Spicy on the palate, with strawberries, cherry and spice (cinnamon?). Very smooth and easy to drink, but overshadowed by the other wines tonight.

Aromas of ripe berries, with spicy savory overtones. A palate of mulberries,plums and blackberries.

This is a blend known as "GSM" of which the Aussies are fond. This example is extremely chocolate-y on the nose and full-bodied on the palate. Plush and complex.

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.

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.
