Kaesler 'The Bogan' Shiraz 2020
Kaesler's 'The Bogan' is a quintessential, full-bodied Shiraz produced from an assemblage of estate vines planted in 1899 and the 1960s. Much like a favourite flannelette shirt, the Kaesler Bogan is full of warmth and personality. Creator Reid Bosward was determined to prove that being described as a ‘country bogan’ was no barrier to producing a fine Barossa Shiraz and this wine is proof that a classy red transcends class. The Bogan is a classic, rich and pure Shiraz that will age gracefully over the next 20 years. The grapes are handpicked and sorted, destemmed and fermented in tank for 8 – 9 days, with pump overs as required. After fermentation the wine was pressed and left to settle for a few days before being racked into seasoned French oak and matured for 15 months. Bright, deep crimson in colour the nose offers dark plum and blueberry aromas, with hints of charcuterie and char from the integrated oak. The palate is classic Bogan in style, full bodied, dense and rich, with flavours of dark fruits, layering the palate, finishing soft with pure, fine tannins.
