"Very good"- Gary Walsh
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.
Unlike their flagship Block 6, the Hillside Shiraz allows Kay Brothers to pick various parcels of fruit so as to assemble the best blend possible for each vintage. This 2020 Kay Brothers Amery Hillside Shiraz is another full flavoured McLaren Vale Shiraz with plenty of class. The nose opens with alluring notes of smoky chacuterie, mocha, blackberry and dried herbs followed by a hint of cedar. The palate is dense and concentrated, with lashings of rich dark berry fruits, fine chocolate and an underlying earthiness.
"Better than the Block 6 in 2020 for me, and sometimes Hillside is that way. Blue and black fruit, toasted coconut and liquorice, oyster shell, hazelnut and porcini. It’s full-bodied, but lush and plump, ripe blue fruit with earthy flavours, some sweet toasty spiced bourbon oak, rich tannin, dark chocolate, thyme and lavender, with an inky and savoury finish of excellent length. Very good. 93+ Points Tasted: Mar23. 14% alc. $49 Screwcap Drink : 2024 - 2034+"- Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
