I bumped into Kaesler winemaker Stephen Dew in Melbourne a few weeks ago and it was great to catch up with this wonderfully talented man. I have known him for an eternity but we rarely see each other and so when I said that his Cabernet was going to feature in my December mixed case he was genuinely moved. This is an Aussie version of a lusty claret - if only Bordeaux could ripen its grapes like this stunner! Amazingly dense and bold but with bounce and freshness, too, this is a grand finale wine to a truly great feast.
