Winemaker's Notes:

The fruit for the Stonehorse bottling comes off of 15-45-year old estate vines.
The "Stonehorse" wines are vinified to make styles that highlight the fruit characteristics without too much influence from new oak.
My Notes:

About Kaesler:

Kaesler is a privately owned wine company that produces estate grown wines from vineyards as old as 1893. The Kaesler family were pioneers who settled in the Barossa Valley in the 1840's. In 1891 they bought a parcel of land and in 1893 planted their first vines. Today Kaesler wines are made from these ancient, dry grown vineyards, by the third owners of this magnificent property.
