Winemaker Notes

During the last decade of the 19th Century Herbert & Frederick Kay planted the first Shiraz vines on the eastern hillside of their McLaren Vale Amery Vineyard. In 1992 the last of those original Hillside Shiraz plantings - Block 6 - celebrated its centenary and to commemorate this milestone Herbert's grandson Colin began replanting the old Hillside vineyard using cuttings taken from the ancient gnarled vines of Block 6.

This 'Hillside Shiraz' is the fourth release from the new plantings and an outstanding continuation of the Hillside tradition. From the very small, high quality vintage Colin Kay has made a truly memorable wine. An inviting combination of sweet ripe berry aromas, intense purple red colour and concentrated full-bodied flavours. Further bottle maturation will allow this superb Shiraz to reach its full potential and we recommend decanting 1 hour prior to drinking.

Kay Brothers, McLaren Vale, Australia
Image of winery
Established in 1890 by Australian born brothers Herbert & 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 & the cellar door, which is part of the original winery complex, boasts some stunning panoramic views of the surrounding picturesque valleys and hillsides. The Kay's are specialists of traditional grape growing & 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) & 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 ageing in small American oak casks. The Block 6 Shiraz & Hillside Shiraz spend up to two & a half years maturing in a combination of American, Eastern European and French oak barrels.
