2020 Kaesler Old Bastard Shiraz

Old Bastard

The Kaesler ‘Old Bastard’ Barossa Shiraz is arguably one of Australia’s most highly regarded wines. The name refers to a small number of ‘old bastards’ – gnarly old ‘bush vines’ planted in 1893, which form the heart of the Kaesler brand. The 2020 vintage was challenging however equally as rewarding for those willing to put in the effort. Dry and warm conditions throughout spring into summer resulted in significantly reduced yields, however mild conditions throughout the harvest period enabled a long, even ripening period”. Aged in the finest French oak barriques for 20 months prior to bottling.
