Kaesler The Bogan Shiraz (750ml)
The Barossa Valley is world famous for concentrated styles of Shiraz. Bogan Shiraz is well known to be a quintessential, full bodied style of Shiraz. The two Shiraz vineyards from which this wine is sourced complement each other well – The Marananga (planted in 1899) on soils of schist rock over blue grey clay and deep compacted broken down schist with red sandstone pebbles on the surface provides intensity and particular “blue fruit” offerings. The Nuriootpa block, (planted in 1965), has loam over clay soil providing more “black fruits.” Winner of Australia’s Best Shiraz, Great Australian Shiraz Challenge and double gold medals at the San Francisco Wine Show.
The Bogan Shiraz is aged 15 months in 25% new oak.
Full and balanced Shiraz, with big blueberry and blackberry flavours complimented by savory notes of wood, grilled meat and dried herbs. The palate is plush with an almost creamy texture with very supple tannins. Hints of plum and licorice unfold on the finish. Easy to enjoy now, but has the structure to still shine for over the next decade.
