Kaesler Old Bastard Shiraz 2017

JAMES HALLIDAY 96 POINTS! 
LANGTONS CLASSIFIED “Outstanding”

"While this toys with the riper spectrum with its soy sauce and blackstrap licorice flavours, it somehow gets pulled back into its shapely groove. The fruit is lovely - off vines planted in 1893, the tannins silky if powerful abetted by the 35% new French oak, yet the line of bright acidity keeps this buoyant. Somehow, it just works." Wine Companion

"The Old Bastard Shiraz is the essence of the Barossa Valley and is a true testament to the history, soils and place that is the Barossa. The oldest vineyards in the Old Vine Trio, with planted in 1893, the Kaesler Old Bastard Shiraz is one of Australia’s most collected wines and is considered a benchmark for premium Barossa Shiraz around the world.

Dark purple red, with a garnet edge. Fresh and fruit driven with blackberries, raspberries and blueberries. Some cherry notes on the nose. A combination of forest fruits with blackberries and mulberries. Savoury, aromatic spices of anise and nutmeg, with some coffee and chocolate notes. Silky, delicate tannins; good acidity and well balanced. Full body." Kaesler
