2020 Kaesler Cabernet Sauvignon


At Kaesler we feel that Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon is the lost child of the region. With careful handling Barossa Cabernets can be amazing and the Kaesler Cabernet Sauvignon is no exception.


Winter saw plenty of small rain events, but there were no soaking rains to push moisture deep into the soil. October, November and December saw high temperatures and we had to manage our water carefully. The intense heat impacted the volume of fruit; however, February was much cooler, and we received good rainfall which meant the grape quality was very good.

Carefully hand harvested at ultimate fruit sweetness from estate vineyards, the fruit is fermented separately on skins for 9 days with temperatures ranging from 19-28 deg celcius. The wine is then pressed to stainless steel tanks and allowed to go dry. Malolactic fermentation is completed in new and 1 year old French oak barriques for 20 months and topped monthly.

APPEARANCE: Red / purple with a dark centre.
BOUQUET: Complex aromas of blackberry, plum, kirsch, vanilla and lavender combine with hints of spicey sandalwood oak.
PALATE: Full bodied, with rich and intense black fruit flavours, meld into the chalky tannins. The complex structure of this wine suggests it will age for many years.
FOOD MATCH: Lamb and other red meats or hearty mushroom dishes.

2020 Cabernet Sauvignon

Barossa Valley is cooler than is generally believed and
a great climate for Cabernet. The thing with Barossa
Cabernet is that when it’s ready for harvest our winery
is full of Shiraz. This is when the winemakers beg our
viticulturalist to harvest one fermenter’s worth right in
the sweet spot. Barossa Valley Cabernet is always going
to be richer and juicer than some of our cooler climate
cousins, but this helps aid its drinkability in its youth.
