Our homage to the great old vines of the Barossa Valley, this wine is composed of 100% Shiraz. Complex and concentrated, the wine is cloaked in velvet tannins that will continue to develop for another 10 at least. The Factor is all that you would expect of a pureblood Barossa Shiraz.
When poured, the density and depth of the 2004 Struie is immediately apparent; completely black/purple with an opulent magenta tinge. A floral hit of violets makes way for the more brooding aromas of tar, chocolate, licorice and coffee with a subtle hint of cinnamon and spice.
The rich, luscious palate of great concentration envelopes the mouth and silky smooth tannins compliment and complete this elegant blend.
Barbecue, ribs, spicy sausages and smoked brisket.
An elegant medium bodied, rich, fruit driven wine with a deep purple hue and complex aromas of creme de cassis, blackberries, black olives and coffee.
The fruit dominant palate displays flavours of bIackberry, cedar, mocha chocolate, liquorice and mint combined with fine integrated oak and grape tannins and a long persistent finish.
This red developed beautifully in the glass and is an excellent food wine, which will complement rather than dominate food.
Kay's are specialist traditional red wine makers utilising grapes from their own 22-hectare Amery Vineyard. The grape varieties grown are Shiraz (including the 1892 Block 6), Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Viognier, Grenache, Mourvedre (Mataro) and Muscat Blanc.
Colin Kay's winemaking philosophy is to make rich full-bodied fruit-driven wines (using the original Open Fermenters and Basket Press) with small oak cask maturation.
Ribeye and sirloin, beef short ribs, portobello mushrooms, Cheddar or Gouda cheese.
Dense black cherry colour and aromas of butter over blackberry and blackcurrant together with pepper, tar and liquorice.
The intense fruit dominant characters carry through to the velvety textured palate and combine with flavours of chocolate (mocha), liquorice, coconut, vanilla (American oak), pepper and spice - a red with tremendous mouth feel and great length.
Medium ruby. Assertive, high-toned red berry aromas are complemented by anise, coconut, violet and rose. Quite suave in texture, with bright, sweet flavors of raspberry, cherry, violet pastille and candied licorice.
There's nice lift and energy to the finish, which shows clear raspberry and cherry flavors that really cling to the palate.
Multi layered concentration of very rich, juicy, full-bodied black-berried fruits combined with chocolate, tar, pepper, liquorice, smoky oak and chewy robust tannins.
An intensely complex mouthful of Shiraz fruit with a finish that lingers and lingers. The rich fruit carries the 15.5% alc/vol and we would see this Block 6 developing into a great example of old vine Shiraz with 6 years plus in a good cellar.
