The Wine

The Kay Brothers' Block 6 Shiraz is a robust, cellar-worthy wine, featuring a rich fruit profile, chocolatey tannins, and a malty oak base. The 1.6-hectare Block 6, part of the larger 22-hectare Amery Vineyards, was originally known for its old bush vines and pumpkins. The grapes from Block 6 are batch-fermented in traditional open fermenters built by the Kay Brothers in 1895. Some batches are hand-plunged, while others ferment under header boards. Post-fermentation, the wine is drained and basket-pressed into a combination of new and aged American and Eastern European oak barrels, where it matures for 18 to 24 months before being blended and bottled with a screw cap.
