James Halliday 98 Points!


"An epic wine from vines planted 8 years before Federation in 1893. A distillation of all the other shiraz wines made at Kaesler - big, layered, ripe, dense, spicy, tannic, lively and fresh. You could argue that it's a caricature, much like the label on the front of the bottle. But is so much better than that. A historical time machine with its own a gravitational pull."


- James Halliday


Kaesler Old Bastard is one of Australia’s most highly regarded Shiraz wines, is consistently rated as one of the Barossa’s benchmark Shiraz wines and is highly sought after by wine collectors around the world.

Consistent wine making since 1998, superb vineyard management and the highest quality Burgundian oak – this is a wine that lets the fruit do the talking. It’s absolutely fruit driven to the core and supported by the best oak.

The Old Bastard vineyard was planted in 1893, and there are just 2.5 acres of these magnificent old vineyards. Volume is purely dictated by the quality of grapes produced each season.
