2012 Kaesler "The Bogan" Shiraz
Barossa Valley, South Australia
Ooo this is delicious! The Kaesler is dark and brooding, almost black in the glass, with a little spice and a bit of that classic Barossa licorice. It will live happily on your dinner table or in your cellar for years to come.
$48.59 as part of a mixed case.
Sorry, sold out. Awaiting ETA on next vintage.
"Dark red, almost black. Nose of black cherry and deep red plums, sandalwood and spice. On the palate, concentrated and structured, yet elegant with a signature velvety palate. Fruit driven with supple, smooth tannins. Fantastic length and focus. The wine has a long future, Bogan to the core. Prospers for 20 years."
" Matured in 90% French oak (25% new and the remainder 2 & 3 years old) and 10% American oak (2 years old). The wine was racked twice over the next 12 month with regular topping. No filtration. The wine was bottled without fining or filtration. 14% alc."
"97 pts ... From 1899 and 1965 estate plantings, matured in French (75%) and American oak for 15 months. An exceptional pedigree reflected in a shiraz of rare elegance, balance and finesse; its supple, medium-bodied palate is almost lip smacking, so juicy is it, but there is no shortage of texture or structure. Drink through 2045."
