Kay Brothers Amery Block 6 Shiraz 2011

McLaren Vale, South Australia   |    750ml   |    14.5%
New vintage of Kay Brothers Block 6 Shiraz due for delivery October 1, 2013.

Kay Brothers Block 6 Shiraz has firmly established itself as one of Australia's most sought after wines. Made using traditional open fermenters originally built by the Kay Brothers in the late 1890's. Following fermentation, the wine is drained and basket pressed into predominantly new American and Balkan oak for a 28 month maturation period.

This is always a stunning example of McLaren Shiraz with a long cellaring potential, and we expect the extremely limited stocks of the newly released 2011 Kay Brothers Amery Block 6 Shiraz to sell out quickly.

File this under ‘How did they do that?’. Much lighter style of Block 6 here and they have risen to meet the road. Oak is less and finesse is more. Red and black fruits, mint chocolate, hazelnut and vanilla, dried herbs, a little earth and spice. Fine boned, almost, clear acid and light tannin with the typical ironstone feel of Kays, but played at lower volume. It is not astringent, nor is it swampy, though it does show some of the vintage character. Finish is firm and clear too. Don’t be put off by the vintage; this is a wine well worthy of the investment. Rated: 93+ Points Tasted: Sep13 Alcohol: 13.5% Price: $70 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2015 - 2021+" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.

Established in 1890, Kay Brothers Amery is one of Australia's winemaking treasures. Remarkably this McLaren Vale icon is still in founding family hands with Colin Kay continuing to produce some of South Australia's finest examples of Shiraz.
