An illustrious vineyard winery of great historical import, the Kay Brothers Amery property is planted to sacred vines which can be traced back to cuttings transplanted from the original Hardy site at Tintara. Holding pride of place as one of Mclaren Vale's first commercial vineyards, the winemaking practices at Kay Brothers have remained largely unchanged since establishment in the nineteenth century. An ancient basket press, painted bright red, is still employed to gently crush grapes in the traditional old world way. The exquisite Kay Brothers range remains one of the most sensational values in superior vintages of new world wine, the fruit of distinguished old vines, family operated since establishment, an essential experience for every enthusiast of the timeless and enduring Aussie Claret style... The essence & excellence of old mclaren vale vines»
There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz. Crafted from the same parcels, in the same way, by the same hands, that collaborated to create, the most celebrated triumphs in the history of our nation's highest accolade, the Jimmy Watson Memorial..

A compilation of Shiraz from the distinguished Mount Langi Ghiran estate vineyards, including a parcel from the illustrious Langi Old Block. Fruit is harvested off vines averaging over twenty years of age, crushed into traditional open fermenters and treated to a fortnight of maceration on skins. A significant proportion of whole bunches are included to introduce complexity and infuse richness of tannin structure. Batches are inoculated to specialist yeasts NT50 and AWRI 796 for a traditional course of old world Pigeage, foot treaded with boots on, throughout the ferments. Upon completion to dryness, components are filled to 228 Litre French oak barriques for fifteen months maturation.
Dark garnet with purple rim. Black cherry, blueberry and mixed spice notes, violet florals in the background. Hints of pepper and soft oak spice are well integrated with the dark lush fruits. Blueberry, cherry and blackberry fruits dominate the palate, beautifully interwoven pepper and spice. Medium bodied silky tannins in perfect balance with the fruits and fine oak. Good length on a spice and savoury finish.
