It has been producing premium quality, estate grown Shiraz from old vines for over 20 years. Kaesler produces a range of classic Barossa wines. The flagship of which is the Old Bastard, released to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the vineyard from which it is sourced. Other notable wines in the collection include the Alte Reben Shiraz and the WOMS which is a quintessential Australian blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The Stonehorse collection is the entry-level range offered from Kaesler. It includes varietal Chardonnay, Touriga and Malbec. The estate is comprised of several vineyards in the Barossa, totalling around 37 hectares (92 acres) of vines. The Home vineyard, which surrounds the winery, is Kaesler's original vineyard and has sandy soils with a layer of clay which helps the vines in the hot, dry conditions. This vineyard has a small plot of vines planted in 1893 which are used to produce the Old Bastard Shiraz. A plot of Shiraz in a nearby vineyard planted in 1899 produces the Alte Reben Shiraz.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-01-04T13:26:52-05:00","created_at":"2022-12-30T13:04:14-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_Australia","Other_Wine","Producer_Kaesler","Region_South Australia","RK3012","Source_Bestofwines1222","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Syrah\/Shiraz"],"price":29999,"price_min":29999,"price_max":29999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42655372443786,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2018 | Kaesler | Old Bastard Shiraz","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":29999,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/07_be5b85fa-41be-426f-b13b-c3886e43dcd5.png?v=1672423515"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/07_be5b85fa-41be-426f-b13b-c3886e43dcd5.png?v=1672423515","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2018 | Kaesler | Old Bastard Shiraz at CaskCartel.com","id":23874254340234,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.432,"height":630,"width":272,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/07_be5b85fa-41be-426f-b13b-c3886e43dcd5.png?v=1672423515"},"aspect_ratio":0.432,"height":630,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/07_be5b85fa-41be-426f-b13b-c3886e43dcd5.png?v=1672423515","width":272}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2018 | Kaesler | Old Bastard Shiraz\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003ePossessing enormous weight and driving power, elements of toasty vanillin oak, scorched earth and fennel lie underneath.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Kaesler\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eRatings: \u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eWA\u003c\/span\u003e | 94  \u003cspan color=\"#ff2a00\" style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eJS\u003c\/span\u003e | 98\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage: \u003c\/b\u003e2018\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 750ml\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 14.5%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Syrah\/Shiraz\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Australia, South Australia\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eDetailed Description\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003ePossessing enormous weight and driving power, elements of toasty vanillin oak, scorched earth and fennel lie underneath.
