2020 Kaesler ‘The Bogan’ Shiraz (NEW RELEASE)


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 block provides intense, old vine produce with particular “blue fruit” offerings. The Nuriootpa block provides more “black fruits.” Winner of Australia’s Best Shiraz, Great Australian Shiraz Challenge.

The Bogan style, like all good bogans know, is going to be pushing itself forward each time. The biggest difference of the 2020 vintage is the decision to move from Cork to Screw Cap. What does this mean for your enjoyment, well, time will tell for now the main benefit is the ease to open and get in your glass even quicker!!
