Kaesler Alte Reben Shiraz 2021


Alte Reben means ‘old vines’ in German, fitting for this impressive Barossa Shiraz as the grapes here come from the team’s old vineyard in Marananga, planted in 1899. The wine will spend around a year and a half maturing in a mix of new and older French oak. Again, from this stellar vintage and the colour is as black as night. A gorgeous nose here, which is rich with blackberries, cassis, mocha, chocolate and plums. There is great intensity throughout, but the balance never waivers. Thrillingly expressive with a seamless and seductive texture and silky tannins. Excellent length, love this, an absolutely cracking Barossa Shiraz. Twenty years ahead of it, probably more.

Variety: Red Wine, Shiraz
