Kay Brothers was founded in 1890 by brothers Herbert and Frederick Kay and is the oldest McLaren Vale winery still owned and managed by descendents of the founding family. The estate is located 24 miles south of Adelaide and borders St. Vincent’s Gulf. The 54 acre estate is planted to Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Grenache, Mataro and Muscat Blanc. Remarkably, the Shiraz vines planted in 1892 in Block 6 are still productive and solely used for its namesake wine. Colin Kay is a third generation vigneron and continues to use traditional methods to make wines in the “house style”. These full-bodied wines are made using open-top fermentors and an 80 year old basket press. Wines age for a minimum of 18 months in small American and Eastern European oak casks. The Block 6 Shiraz and Hillside Shiraz spend up to 30 months maturing in a combination of American, Eastern European and French oak barrels.

Tasting notes
The wine matures for 24 months in new Hungarian andBulgarian oak barrels and is a deep ruby purple. Vibrant and generous aromas of fresh dark berries precede complex and layered notes of eucalyptus, mulberry, dark berries and sweet cigar box. Juicy and generous tannins are underlined by minerality - this is a wine that demands contemplation.

 Wine Advocate 89 points (Feb 2013)
Medium to deep garnet in color with a touch of purple, the 2010 Cuthbert Cabernet Sauvignon exudes fragrant aromas of lavender, violets and dried Mediterranean herbs over fresh black currant and blackberries with a whiff of cedar. Medium-bodied with a good concentration of expressive, herb-laced black currant flavors, it is supported by a firm level of chewy tannins, crisp acid and finishes long. Drink it now to 2019+.

Technical notes
Cuthbert Cabernet Sauvignon is only produced in the finest vintages - to date, only three have been released.
