Food Pairings for Kaesler Shiraz Barossa Valley the Bogan
One of the best Aussie shiraz in my wine tasting history. Highly recommended.
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.
Tasted Aug 2011. Wow...awesome. Great value for a great Aussie Shiraz

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 doesn't try to be coy or subtle - 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.
Ripe and rich, but not over the top, a plush mouthful of cherry, blackberry, plum and licorice flavors, picking up coffee and cream notes as the finish sails on and on. Tannins are nicely integrated, but they can use cellaring to soften. Best from 2008 through 2019.
The 2003 Shiraz The Bogan is an exuberant, flamboyantly-styled Shiraz boasting an opaque ruby/purple color, wonderful peppery, blackberry, and currant fruit, and hints of charcoal as well as spice box. This full, opulent offering was fashioned from a vineyard planted in 1899, 1961, 1985, and 1990.
Big and bold, with an unmistakable hit of American oak - vanilla and dill - 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 now-2015.
