Winemaker Notes

Long held in high esteem amongst locals as one of McLaren Vales finest Shiraz, Block 6 Shiraz continues the tradition at Kay Brothers of producing full bodied red wines that have the grace and pedigree to age for years. Still hand picked, still fermented in the original open top fermenters that the very first vintage was made in, Block 6 Shiraz is a wine of great strength, deep complexity and amazing beauty.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2002 Shiraz Block 6 (made from 112-year-old vines cropped at a mere 1-2 tons of fruit per acre) is the antithesis of the Hillside cuvee. Backward and nearly impenetrable, its inky/ruby/purple color is accompanied by high levels of tannin, huge structure, and massive concentration. It requires 3-6 more years to become civilized and accessible. This dense Shiraz saturates the palate with extract and concentration as well as elevated tannin. It is amazing one winery could produce two wines that are so totally opposite. Only consumers with cool cellars and the patience to wait 5-6 years should purchase this blockbuster. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022+.

Kay Brothers Colin Kay with Sam in Block 6 Winery Image

Established in 1890 by Australian born brothers Herbert and Frederick Kay, it is the oldest McLaren Vale

winery still in the hands of the founding family, with Herbert’s grandson Colin Kay continuing the family

winemaking tradition. Bordering St. Vincent’s Gulf, 24 miles south of Adelaide, the Kay Brothers

McLaren Vale vineyards grace the rolling foothills of the Southern Mt. Lofty Ranges. The winery is

located at the top of a hill three miles from the McLaren Vale Township and the cellar door, which is part

of the original winery complex, boasts some stunning panoramic views of the surrounding picturesque

valleys and hillsides.

The Kays are specialists of traditional grape growing and winemaking, utilizing grapes from their own 54

acre vineyards to produce their wines. The main grape variety grown is Shiraz (including the 1892

planted Block 6) followed by Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Grenache, Mataro (Mourvedre) and Muscat

Blanc. Colin’s winemaking philosophy is to make rich full-bodied fruit-driven wines (using the original

open fermenters and basket press) with a minimum of 18 months aging in small American oak casks.

The Block 6 Shiraz & Hillside Shiraz spend up to two and a half years maturing in a combination of

American, Eastern European and French oak barrels.
