Kaesler Red Rhone Blend Barossa Valley Avignon 2004

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

A blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Shiraz, and 20% Mourvegrave;dre aged 12 months in used French and American oak, the 2004 GSM Avignon is essentially the Reserve version of the Stonehorse. Living up to its name, it offers a peppery garrigue and kirsch liqueur-scented bouquet that is a dead-ringer for Chacirc;teauneuf du Pape. Big, spicy and earthy, with sweet tannin, it smells like a Provenccedil;al open-air market. Enjoy this opulent, round, complex, tasty Australian red over the next 5ndash;7 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.

Living up to its name, it offers a peppery garrigue and kirsch liqueur-scented bouquet that is a dead-ringer for Châteauneuf du Pape. Big, spicy and earthy, with sweet tannin, it smells like a Provençal open-air market. Enjoy this opulent, round, complex, tasty Australian red over the next 5–7 years.
