One of the great wines of Australia.
About This Wine
Planted in the late 19th century, Block 6 is one of the oldest heritage vineyards in Australia. Gnarly old vines produce some truly concentrated and exceptional fruit.
Serious and powerful wine here, with layer upon layer of complexity to it. Perfumed florals, dark fruits, charcuterie and a hint of cedar. So much concentration with dark cherries, cacao and black olive, and more.
Rich and tannic right now, this is a wine that needs time to soften. The bones are there, now, it’s just a matter of some patience, for us to experience the glory of one of Australia’s greatest vineyards and wines.
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.
