Kaesler Shiraz Barossa Valley the Bogan 2006
The wine displays intense characters of blueberry, blackberry, plum, mocha and spicy oak. It is youthful and tannic but has good balance between all the components and will age very well. The persistence of flavour is impressive and is probably the reason why this wine has consistently received ratings in the mid 90's over the last five vintages.
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.
One of the best Aussie shiraz in my wine tasting history. Highly recommended.
Four and a half glasses
Deep inky purple in color with a smooth gradation in color from the rim to center. Fresh cut grass on the nose with hints of plum and dark fruit. Initial taste (10 minutes after pour) Dark fruit and licorice up front followed by a wave of heat on the back of the throat. (Taste after 30 minutes in the glass) - Much smoother. Deep rich and dark fruit taste up front and through the mid-palette (blackberry, plum and a hint of cassis). Light acidity finishes this off for excellent balance.
Blueberries and cream. Great nose, great finish. Extremely well balanced.
Fantastic wine to drink now or later. Smooth and complex with length.
External Reviews for Kaesler Shiraz Barossa Valley the Bogan
Big and bold, like the excellent '04 version. If anything, it emphasizes the fruit even a bit more, with less spicy complexity, but it's a black hole of plum and blackberry fruit that explodes in the mouth, staining the palate with fruity intensity. ...

The grapes for this wine come from vines that are more than 100 years old. The dark purple color lets you know to hang on to your knickers. From start to finish this wine doesnrsquo;t try to be coy or subtle mdash; it is full throttle all the way. Flavors of white pepper, eucalyptus and spice turn into warmed fruits (not stewed) like plum, raspberry, and currant. Some wines with alcohol this high (15.5%) tend to be thick and syrupy, but this one has a balance and integration of fruit, alcohol, and tannin that is hard to match.

The 2002 Shiraz The Bogan, which is aged 22 months in American oak before being bottled unfiltered, is a spectacular, classic example of Barossa Shiraz. An inky/purple color is accompanied by a huge bouquet of white flowers, toast, blackberry liqueur, blueberries, and creosote. Packed with intensely concentrated black fruits and a spicy complexity, it is the antithesis of elegance. While still an infant in terms of development, it is hard to know for sure, but I suspect it will become more civilized and elegant as it evolves, and should last for 15ndash;20+ years.
The 2004 Shiraz The Bogan, a blend of 98% Shiraz and 2% Viognier aged 20 months in primarily American oak, is a seamlessly constructed wine that was tasted immediately prior to bottling. Inky/purple-colored, with superb ripeness and fruit as well as loads of cassis, blackberry, cedar, and spice box, it will be gorgeous young, yet should age effortlessly for 10ndash;15 years.
Big and bold, with an unmistakable hit of American oak mdash; vanilla and dill mdash; on the nose, but also huge levels of fruit concentration. Creamy, thick and mouthfilling, loaded with blackberries and spice. The long, robust finish suggests a certain amount of ageability, although this is certainly enjoyable now. Drink nowndash;2015.
