    From the German meaning 'Old Vine' Alte Reben is a powerful yet supple wine showing elegance and length. Kaesler Alte Reben Shiraz 2016 is from a patch adjacent to the Greenock Creek – the top soil is a loam heavily laden with gneiss, a soil type not from the area but washed down from the Eden Valley over the millennia. It has a metallic shimmer. This rests over infinite combinations of stony alluvial wash from the creek. It is extremely deep, not particularly fertile but extraordinarily rich in minerals and trace elements. Sustainable farming systems ensure that the loam is replenished each year. 

    The nose is ripe dark red and blacker spectrum of blackberry and plum. Kisses of cassis and framboise wafting high in the glass. Oak reveals itself as crème caramel, vanilla and sandalwood. The palate is subtle but firm tannin, round and generous, stream all the way through and bulldoze their way to end of the palate. Acid is solid, bracing and highly structured to suit the tannin. This wine is in the old fashioned style, designed for the long haul. No stalky whole berry, lift or unripe palate structure here. Should drink well into the 2040’s.
