The Kaesler Viognier is better known as our winemakers ‘Love Child’. Sourced from a single site in Nuriootpa planted in 2000, this special white variety has become an obsession for the winemakers and our customers.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS
The 2021 vintage was in a word Brilliant. Barossa saw cool and dry conditions which has produced excellent quality reds and whites. Great growing conditions combined with good yields for some varieties, created a memorable harvest, with all wines showing a wide array of aromas and flavours. The highlight for 2021 was the overall quality, a genuine 10/10 season.

WINEMAKING

The grapes were carefully hand harvested in the cool of the morning and then whole bunch pressed extracting only the free run juice. The juice was allowed to settle for a few days and then racked off to one- and two-year-old French oak puncheons. Wild fermentation took place over the next 20 days, followed by 6 months on lees, stirred once a week to add complexity.

APPEARANCE:
Pale straw.
BOUQUET: Aromas of honeysuckle and white flesh stone fruit, fill the glass.
