Kay Brothers Shiraz/Grenache/Mourvedre 2000

Rhone Red Blends from McLaren Vale, Australia

Item No. 57214
  • red wine

Winemaker's Notes

Colin Kay has combined low cropping McLaren Vale Shiraz, Mourvedre (Mataro) and Grenache grapes with traditional winemaking utilising the original Amery Winery open fermenters and basket press to produce this delightful rich fruit-driven red. The wine (approx. 72% Shiraz, 19% Mourvedre and 9% Grenache) was allowed to evolve in American Oak barriques for 18 months prior to bottling, and although it is very approachable now, 2-4 years bottle maturation is recommended.

This is a deep coloured full-bodied wine with abundant ripe fruit flavours and subtle oak influences.
