Kaesler owns just over 37 hectares (92 acres) of vineyards in the Barossa Valley, the majority of it is old vine material planted in 1893, 1899, 1930 and in the 1960’s.
Fruit is hand picked and hand pruned with irrigation kept to a minimum. Crop thinning is done in most years to reduce yields and maximise flavour with blocks kept separate until final blending. Nigel Van Der Zande, the Vineyard Manager for Kaesler (and it’s sister vineyards), has introduced revegetation projects to improve soils, help restore the natural balance and give something back to the environment.
