2022 Kaesler Old Vine Semillon
The Kaesler vineyards are located around the village of Nuriootpa in the Barossa Valley and have been planted since 1893. After a long period working in France and South Africa, the successful winemaker Reid Bosward returned to Barossa in 1999 to work there with a number of partners. Kaesler to take over. The biggest temptation for this acquisition was the opportunity to work with an unprecedented amount of very old vineyards. All vineyards are worked according to a 'sustainable viticulture' program. The old vines produce extremely powerful and concentrated wines that are characteristic of the region. It is striking that the style of the wines becomes more refined over the years. This balance between power, concentration, freshness and elegance is perfectly reflected in, for example, the beautiful Shiraz called 'The Bogan'.
The Kaesler Old Vine is an expressive and fresh fruit cool-climate wine. In the nose aromas of fresh citrus fruit (lime, grapefruit) and passion fruit, in addition some notes of mown grass. The wine has an invigorating high acidity that provides a nice balance in the aftertaste with notes of fresh fruit lasting for a long time.
