Download Tasting Note:
|Grape Variety||72% Grenache / 28% Mourvedre|
|Vineyard Soils||Loam over clay (Nuriootpa)|
|Vine Age||85 year old Grenache and Mourvedre|
The ancient history of Grenache is well understood and re-told many times, what is not known so well is the equally as old yet vastly different paths Mourvedre has taken. These two varieties formed part of the initial collection bought to the Barossa as warm and dry environs are prevalent in Australia. At Kaesler, we retain and respect varieties and blends. This vintage we decided on a Grenache Mourvedre blend instead of a blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre.
Cherry with a bright youthful edge.
Dark fruits, hints of spice and pepper.
Supple, elegant mouth feel. Blackberry with lighter red fruits such as red currant and plum. Some spicy notes of fruit on the palate.
Enjoy over the next 5-8 years.
