WINE OF THE WEEK
Kaesler Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 – Continuing the theme of Cabernet for winter is this delicious example from the Barossa.
Kaesler was established in 1893. The estate has changed hands a couple of times since then but at the core of the property is large parcel of vines over 40 years old, affectionately known as ‘The Old Bastards’.
|A great example of Barossa Cabernet.|
The Kaesler style is to make succulent and seductive reds that are charming and flavoursome while style offering density and complexity. This wine delivers this and more. Normally I avoid Cabernet from hot climates, such as the Barossa. However these guys have managed to meld their silky house style with the lean acid and firm tannins that I look for in good Cabernet. This wine is drinking well now but will develop some more leather and earthy characters over the next few years.
$30.00ea and cheaper by the dozen.
