Kaesler The Bogan Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Sourced from who estate vineyards, one planted 1899, the other in 1965, matured in American and French oak for 15 months, neither fined nor filtered. This Shiraz has a luxuriant display of sweet fruit wrapped in Swiss chocolate; carries its alcohol well thanks to spicy/savoury tannins on the finish.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
The equally deep colour has a better hue than Old Bastard; produced from estate vineyards planted in 1899 and 1965; aromas of licorice, boot polish and black fruits are followed by a distinctly savoury, spicy palate, oak and tannins playing a support role. Shiraz.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2007 Vintage) says
Some of the vines this wine was grown on were planted in 1899. Australia has the oldest productive shiraz vines in the world. This wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered. There's a lot of warm flavour here but its most blessed trait is its fine, filigreed tannin; a true stamp of class. It tastes of chocolate and blackberries, tar and earth and it lingers for quite some time after you've swallowed. Lots of noticeable alcohol, but a very good wine.

Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
Well, what's in a name? This is full-throttle 16%-alcohol shiraz that has all the subtlety of a hotted-up Holden SLR Torana. It wins on muscle with ripe plum and black fruit aromas, some earthy old-vine depth too. The palate's smoothly shaped with deep-scooping, fine tannins and intense plum and blackberry flavour; the finish resonates with fine tannins floating long and even.

Another full-bodied wine, but again the quality of the fruit and the concentration is beyond question; the flavour is quite astounding and persistent, driven by alcohol.

Big, powerful beauty. Great'colour and density of dark fruit and nutty cedar aromas. Great structure and substance to the palate, with sweet concentration of fruit and loads of tannins. This wine gives a lot.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Like all the Kaesler wines, carries the extreme alcohol with surprising ease; black fruits and a bright finish; from 1899 and 1965 plantings.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Deep colour; a complex mix of blackberry fruits, earth and spice; the alcohol doesn't burn, and the overall extract only medium-bodied, the tannins in restraint.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Dense colour; powerful and concentrated, and here the alcohol does make life slightly uncomfortable; certainly an abundance of black fruits, chocolate and earth.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Deep, intense colour; extremely powerful and concentrated; huge black fruits, huge tannins and masses of extract; will live forever if the cork holds. Mega 15.5° alcohol.
