    Andrew Nugent grew up next door to the great historical wineworks at Penfolds Magill. He honed his craft as viticulturalist and vigneron amongst the illustrious wineries of old McLaren Vale. In the 1990s, Nugent planted new vines at Woodside along Bird In Hand Road, on the site of an ancient gold mine, a godsend of fortuitously fertile soils and magnificent mesoclimes for stellar quality Adelaide Hills wine. Bird In Hand have since amassed a breathtaking tally of international accolades for the unrivalled excellence of their superlative vintages, wonderfully small batch releases, with the magnificence of structure, seamlessness and immaculacy of fruit, to enthuse curio and cognescenti alike...

    Kaesler WOMS Shiraz Cabernet CONFIRM VINTAGE

    Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa South Australia
    Kaesler own and operate thirty seven acres of prime Barossa viticulture, the majority of it is old vine material, planted 1893, 1899, 1930 and the 1960s. Weapons of Mass Seduction is best suited to those who prefer the big, savoury styles. A powerful dry red, the essential Australian fusion of Shiraz and Cabernet, WOMS is a rich and complex Barossa wine that's tightly woven within a tapestry of well defined oak. WOMS is only ever produced in years of exceptional quality, it can also be relied upon to age very, very well.
    The Kaesler family migrated from Silesia and setlled in the Barossa circa 1840s. They cleared the scrub and planted 96 acres of Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro and White Hermitage in 1891 WOMS is an exclusively estate grown effort, mostly Shiraz from vines established in 1961, with a third of Cabernet Sauvignon picked off blocks planted 1970 to 1985. Fruit is vinified in static fermenters and pumped over twice daily. WOMS was pressed then transferred to a selection of mostly new Burgundian oak barriques for completion of malolactic, racked and returned to barrel, regularly topped up and racked again after a year. Matured for a full term of eighteen months before bottling without fining or filtration.
    Purple crimson colour. Blackberries, mulberry and canned cherries on the bouquet with hints of charry oak. Black cherries, vanilla, some saddle leather characters appear on the palate. WOMS offers layer upon layer of brooding, briary fruit confronted by stunning oak and thick blocks of chocolatey tannin. The fruit is actually quite solid but repressed by oak and tannin at the moment, fruit will prevail. An elegant, savoury wine.
