Kay Brothers ‘Hillside’ Shiraz 2012
- Region:McLaren Vale South Australia, Australia
- Availability:Victoria and Tasmania
The Hillside vineyard was initially planted in 1892 and, in 1992 a systematic replanting of the eastern hillside commenced, using cuttings taken from the 100- year-old Block 6 Shiraz and suitably named New Block 6. Unlike Block 6, Hillside allows Kay Brothers to pick various parcels of fruit so as to assemble the best blend possible.
Rich, ripe array of black fruit flavours, underscored by savoury bacon fat with briary roast beetroot and thyme on the palate. The firm, yet svelte, tannin structure ensures that this classic McLaren Vale Shiraz is packed with complexity and can only benefit from a few years in the cellar.
