Region: Barossa Valley
Bottle size: 375 mL
The Stonehorse wines are full of character like the teams of Clydesdale horses that used to work the heavy clay soil at the Kaesler vineyard, long before tractors were invented. This wine, made from our Shiraz vines planted in 1985, reflect this heritage.
Eyes: Inky bright crimson with a dark centre and a youthful edge.
Nose: Vibrant fruits of the forest and hints of cassis & spice.
Mouth: Supple, elegant mouth feel. Dark fruits such as blackberry and blueberry with lighter red fruits such as red currant. Some spicy notes and oak mingle on the palate.
Winemaking notes: This wine was fermented at a temperature (22-24 Degrees centigrade) in stainless steel and transferred to mixture of some new and majority older oak.
After alcoholic fermentation, it completed its malo lactic fermentation. It was racked and acid adjusted post MLF, then, returned to barrel, where it stayed for 15 months. The average age of the barrels was about 3 years old. This has given a hint of oak but still allowing the fruit to dominate. The wine was bottled with a light filtration.
Sorry, 2017 Kaesler 'Stonehorse' Shiraz 375ml is only available to Club members.
