Kaesler Stonehorse Shiraz
Type: Red Wine
Wine Region: Barossa Valley, Australia
Tasting Notes: Inky bright crimson with a youthful centre and a dark edge. A generous rich dark fruits of, blackberry, blood plum with undertones of caramelised figs. Chalky tannin, hints of oak, with well tuned acidity.
Hand-picked estate-grown fruit. Ten days of skin contact then racked, settled and returned to barriques for a maturation of 15 months. Bottled with no fining.
The Kaesler family were pioneers who settled in the Barossa Valley in the 1840s. In 1891 they bought a parcel of land and in 1893 planted their first vines. Today, Kaesler Wines are made from these ancient, dry grown vineyards by the third owners of this magnificent property.
Suggested food and wine pairing: Star anise duck in the camp oven.
