From an Original Barossa Pioneering Family
Kaesler is a privately owned wine company that produces estate grown wines from vineyards as old as 1893. The Kaesler family were pioneers who settled in the Barossa Valley in the 1840’s. In 1891 they bought a parcel of land and in 1893 planted their first vines.
Today Kaesler wines are made from these ancient, dry grown vineyards, by the third owners of this magnificent property.
Alte Reben is German for “old vines” – and the Kaesler Mataro vines are some of the oldest remaining in the Barossa Valley. At Kaesler, we usually blend the Mataro with Grenache and Shiraz – however in exceptional years the Mataro can shine all on its own.
Blackberries and mulberries with hints of orange rind and dark chocolate.
