Kaesler Red Rhone Blend Barossa Valley Avignon 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Deep nose is marked by a dried fruit character and moist earth/forest floor tones and a buttery overlay. Smells a little mineral water like with a bit of alcoholic burn. There is a pleasant yet mysterious sweetness to the nose like a box of candied fruit. A bit chunky and chewy in the mouth with real presence, lots of polished tannins, well integrated acidity. The flavors are a touch dark and extracted with notes of coffee liquor, roast beef juices, fig and date complimenting the roasted red berry fruit. Finishes a touch short. 88pts

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.

(49% grenache, 32% shiraz and 19% mataro) Saturated ruby. Smoky blackberry and violet aromas are complemented by dried herbs and minerals. Rich, sappy dark berry flavors offer palate-coating depth without any obvious weight. Brisker red berry skin qu... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

This savory red wine is medium-bodied by Australian standards. It spends 12 months in older oak, with the Grenache contributing soft fruit aromas, the Shiraz adding peppery spice, and the Mourvèdre giving a nice edge to the tannins.

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.

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.
