Winemaker Notes

Deep purple in color with a violet hue. It shows aromas of boysenberry, musk and raspberry, with underlying graphite, hazelnut and a hint of cedar.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz Block 6 has aromas of blueberry pie filling and warm black currants with hints of dark chocolate, cherry cordial, violets and yeast extract. Medium to full-bodied, the palate fills the mouth with structured, youthful black fruits and savory nuances, supported by silken tannins and a lively backbone, finishing with great length. Rating: 94(+) Points.

Kay Brothers, Australia
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.

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône Blends, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style.

Whites, often made from Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc tend to be opulent and full of tropical, stone and citrus fruit.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
