Established in 1890, the iconic Kay Brothers Amery winery is one of Australia's most historically significant wineries - utilising many of the same practices it did during its formative years. Remarkably this McLaren Vale treasure remains in the founding family hands, with Colin Kay currently at the helm.
Sourced entirely from the Kay Brothers Amery vineyard, the 2021 Kay Brothers Basket Pressed Shiraz delivers a typically fruit driven, full-bodied rendition of McLaren Vale Shiraz. A complex mixture of red and dark berry fruits, black olive tapenade, crunchy acidity and finishing with fine-grained chalky tannins. A dense, concentrated yet balanced wine, this is will have enormous appeal to fans of this style and delivers remarkable value Shiraz drinking at this price.
"93 Points. Includes 5% Grenache. Aged in French, American and Eastern European oak. Not reviewed here since the 2018 vintage, though aside that, I think it’s one of the better vintages of this wine. Juicy blue, black and red fruit, hazelnut and toasted coconut, dried herb and lavender perfume. It’s medium to full-bodied, a black and blue jube richness to fruit, but also some ironstone and umami flavours in the mix too, tannin is ripe, rippling and supple, and the finish is plump, fresh, and satisfying. It’s a warm hug from McLaren Vale kind of thing, and really lovely. A couple more years to let it shed some puppy fat may not be a bad idea, though it’s still pretty good fun as at now.
