Wine Code Breaker #329

2018 Kaesler The Bogan Shiraz, Barossa Valley, South Australia

“Upper Middle Bogan” is an Australian comedy that meshes together, through family connections, the Melbourne Upper and Bogan cultures.  An hilarious series that exaggerates the characters that we all can relate and sometimes aspire to.  For those who pretend we can’t, let me remind you that a Bogan is a term that is used to describe someone whose speech, clothing, attitude and behaviour are considered unrefined or unsophisticated.  Now, we all have our days and for the day when we feel just a tad or even completely Bogan, Kaesler has just the wine for us to sit back and dwell on our inner Bogan.

The 2018 Kaesler The Bogan Shiraz is from the Barossa Valley in South Australia.  It is unashamedly a bright purple black in colour that leaves very little to the imagination.  The nose leaps out after some swirling with bold red and black fruits combining with exotic fruit spices and spices driven by the oak influence.  The palate is a V8 driven by the blue and black fruits with liquorice, chocolates and enticing spices that grip to the velvety texture, delivering a beautiful, persistent, almost purring finish.  By the way, leave this overnight and it really shines brightly like a drag car burning down the straight.
