2015 KAY BROTH­ERS AMERY VINE­YARDS HILL­SIDE MCLAREN VALE SHI­RAZ

Halliday - Supplement - - Shiraz & Blends Red Hot & Rated -

RRP $45 / 2035

A dis­tinct boy­sen­berry dipped in dark cho­co­late plus a side of black plums, liquorice and spicy, clove­cedary oak (21 months in Amer­i­can and French, 26% new) fill out this won­der­ful wine. Full-bod­ied and densely lay­ered, yet there’s a vi­vac­ity, too, thanks to its re­fresh­ing acid­ity and oh-so-sup­ple, spongy tan­nins. JF 14.5% alc. The Hill­side shi­raz vines cover the eastern hill­side of the Amery vine­yard, us­ing cut­tings sourced from the orig­i­nal Block 6 planted in 1892. The grapes are hand-har­vested, tra­di­tion­ally bas­ket-pressed in our 1928 press. It is a dense and pow­er­ful wine, yet well-bal­anced show­ing plenty of class, built with longevity in mind.
