Century Old Vines...1893 & 1899 Shiraz
The Kaesler vineyards were established in 1893 by the Kaesler family, Silesian pioneers who came to the Barossa Valley in the 1840’s and who took up the 60 acre allotment in 1891. The family planted vines and fruit trees. Generations of the Kaesler family worked the farm until 1986 when it was sold and left the Kaesler family.
A New Era:
Winemaker Reid Bosward and his partners, bought the Kaesler vineyards in 1998. They are the third owners of this property. The original parcel of land comprised of 26.3 acres of vineyards and the original buildings. In 2001 they acquired the neighbouring vineyard, 28.5 acres to complete the original vineyard holdings established by the Kaesler family. This included the 3.7 acres of 1893 Shiraz.
More than 70% of the red wine produced under the Kaesler brand are made from vines more than 40 years old. The Old Bastard Shiraz is a single vineyard wine made from 1893 plantings.
Wines released under the Nashwauk brand are made from fruit sourced from our estate vineyards in McLaren Vale. The vineyards are in the Seaview Hills sub region of McLaren Vale. They are located behind Coriole winery and below Chapel Hill winery. The Nashwauk vineyard is 20 hectares and vines range in age from 12- 45 years.
Kaesler purchased the Nashwauk property in 2005 and the 2006 wines were the first release. Total production will be approximately 5,000 dozen. Limited. Winemakers: Reid Bosward & Stephen Dew.
