Nashwauk by Kaesler Shiraz 2015
- Rich, full-bodied
- McLaren Vale
Here’s one that’s going, going, almost gone. The talented team at Barossa powerhouse Kaesler made this shiraz with fruit sourced out of McLaren Vale. Previous vintages have won wine show trophies and we think this one is worthy of continuing that proud tradition. Alas, they don’t make this wine anymore, so here’s your last chance to get your hands on some. It’s dense and powerful with a fruit expression of plum and blackberry supported by secondary characteristics of dark chocolate and baking spices. Grab some before it walks out the door for the last time.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

McLaren Vale is a region that lives in the shadow of the hype of the Barossa. While it has played on Shiraz as its drawcard, and continues to battle (quite rightly) with the supreme power of the Barossa, perhaps the most exciting wines from this region are its old vine Grenache and Mataro (Mourvedre/Monastrell - whatever you want to call it), and its more recent foray into Spanish and Italian varietals. Both the sun's warmth and the reliable salty afternoon gully breeze make the climate closer to Mediterranean than many other Aussie regions, and some of the Fiano, Vermentino, Tempranillo and Sangiovese from here are sublime (to name only a few). Awareness, proper consideration and sense of place are key attributes to the region's success, and its recent win against urbanisation reinforces the value of the viticultural region.
