Excellent. Time is on its side.
About This Wine
With a 20-month elevage in a mix of French and American oak, this is a big and bold, old-school Aussie Shiraz.
It is everything you’d expect from a wine like this. Powerful flavours of berries, liquorice, leather, etc, all wrapped up on soft velvety oak characteristics that envelop you like a warm hug on a cold winters night.
Long and textured, the tannin integration here is exceptional. This is a wine that while evolved and drinking well now, still has another decade to grow evolve, and dare we say, get even better?
About Kay Brothers
Producing wine on their McLaren Vale estate since 1895, Kay Brothers (named as you would expect for founding brothers Fred and Bert Kay), are one of the oldest producers in the Vale.
With the 3rd generation of the family now managing the business, their growth has seen then expand to a much more corporate structure, helping to preserve their heritage vineyards.
with over 100 ha under vine, they are not a small producer by any means, yet they are still connected very much to their small family origins, with many of the original buildings (now heritage listed) and equipment close to 100 years old still in operation today.
