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
Aromas of blackberries with subtle tobacco leaf andsavory spice mingle with notes of berries and quince.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Feb 2014)
Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Basket Pressed Shiraz is a classic McLaren Vale Shiraz with notes of warm black fruits, chocolate, licorice and spice cake. Full-bodied, it has rich and concentrated fruit flavors structured by medium to firm grainy tannins and a vibrant acid backbone through the long and layered finish. It should age. Drink it now to 2016+.

Technical notes
Finely grained tannins and vibrant acids lends structure and lift on the finish.
