Kaesler Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre Stonehorse 2008
The 'Stonehorse' wines (in this case, a blend of Shiraz, Grenache & Mourvedre) are vinified to make styles that emphasize fruit characteristics with complemantary barrel maturation. The oak is designed to support and add structure to the palate without compromising the drinkability of the wine. The finished wine spent 12 months in predominantly older oakd and has been bottled without fining or filtration. The Grenache contributes soft aromatics and flavors, Shiraz some palate spine and a bit of spice and the Mourvedre lends breadth and depth.
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.
