Kaesler Shiraz Old Bastard Syrah Wine 2002

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The flagship offering the 2002 Shiraz Old Bastard was fashioned from a vineyard planted in 1896 and was cropped at one ton of fruit per acre. It spent 22 months in French oak before being bottled with neither fining nor filtration. A spectacular perfume of raspberries plums blackberries espresso vanilla and charcoal is followed by a tannic Shiraz with a huge palate massive concentration tremendous richness and a multidimensional flavor profile. Less alcoholic (15.2%) than The Bogan it

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.

The flagship offering the 2002 Shiraz Old Bastard was fashioned from a vineyard planted in 1896 and was cropped at one ton of fruit per acre. It spent 22 months in French oak before being bottled with neither fining nor filtration. A spectacular perfume of raspberries plums blackberries espresso vanilla and charcoal is followed by a tannic Shiraz with a huge palate massive concentration tremendous richness and a multidimensional flavor profile. Less alcoholic (15.2%) than The Bogan it should be cellared for 4-6 years and consumed over the following 20-25. While the 2002 is a brilliant effort it is not quite as massive as the 2001 ... but that s splitting hairs. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
