2014 Block 6 Shiraz

SOLD OUT
$85.00 inc GST

30th Single vineyard release, handpicked from 122 year old vines.

 

Long held in high esteem as one of McLaren Vale’s finest Shiraz plantings, Block 6 Shiraz continues the tradition at Kay Brothers of producing full bodied red wines that have the grace and pedigree to age for decades. Handpicked and fermented in the original open top fermenters, Block 6 Shiraz is a wine of great strength, deep complexity and amazing vibrancy.

In their 122nd year a tiny crop of 4.45 tonnes was hand harvested from our enduring old Shiraz vines on 13th of March. The grapes were crushed, de-stemmed and plunged twice daily, while spending 14 days on skins in our traditional open fermenters. The wine was then basket pressed and matured for 22 months in 1/3rd new, 1/3rd second and 1/3rd third use French and American oak puncheons.

Colour: Deep crimson.


Nose: Seductive aromas of Chinese 5 spice, aniseed, boysenberry and a hint of marzipan.


Palate: Lashings of juicy red fruit, gentle acidity, followed by slowly building fine, chalky tannin. Rich and concentrated with power and finesse. Time and careful cellaring will reward your drinking pleasure.
