Kay Bros Block 6 Shiraz 2014
Colour: Bright ruby red.
Nose: Intense, black pepper, spices, cedar wood, underlying dried mulberry with the fruit somewhat muted at this stage.
Palate: Vinous, structured and balanced with a long lingering finish and abundant fine tannins. Full bodied and flavoursome that will respond well with a number of years in the cellar.
Reviewed in the Matthew Jukes/Tyson Stelzer 2008 edition of Taste Food & Wine – “There is one cellar door in Australia that gets more mentions than any other when we are out and about. Every time we hear about the enthusiasm, integrity and willingness to spend time and pour wine with complete strangers, the name that crops up is Kay Brothers. The two Colins, one front of house, one back of house, do an exceptional job of explaining their wines and their phenomenal setting to us all. Block 6 is one of the legendary vineyards of Australia and the fact that this wine can be brought for a two figure sum is, frankly, baffling. Every year it kicks forty or fifty other so-called “cult” wines into touch with its brooding, bitumen, liquorice and black olive flavours.
