Kaesler Shiraz Barossa Valley Stonehorse 2010
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.
This is a keeper. Really liked the wine as it had good full body and balance with a velvety finish and great aroma.
DRINK BETWEEN 2010 AND 2018
[Rocking Horse] concentrated well balanced. Much preffered to the 2003. Blackberry liqueur, chocolate, earth, licorice. Drinking well now; would buy more.

Opaque ruby. Primary dark berry and cherry aromas, with hints of mocha and espresso coming out with air. Broad, fleshy and deep, offering lush dark fruit compote flavors and a seamless texture.

The Aussies are quite fond of this blend, known as "GSM." This red is extremely chocolatey on the nose and full-bodied on the palate. Plush and complex.

Kaeslerandrsquo;s deep ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Shiraz Stonehorse (100% Shiraz aged in a combination of French and American oak) exhibits a big, sweet nose of blackberries, cassis, pepper, and spicy oak. Its opulent, richly fruity, full-bodied, yet well-balanced style suggests it will drink well for 10andndash;15 years.
Dark violet. Pungent, spicy bouquet of blackberry, candied plum, kirsch and violet. Silky in texture, with good weight and impressive vibrancy to the tangy blackberry and blackcurrant flavors. Gentle tannins provide support to the sweet fruit, with bright floral tones adding complexity to the finish. A wonderfully expressive, fruit-driven shiraz thatandrsquo;s delicious right now.
Broad, fresh and open, a lively mouthful of currant, blackberry and dusky spice flavors, picking up peppery notes as the flavors persist against very fine tannins. Best from 2008 through 2012.
