This wine speaks of the brilliance of the 2002 vintage in McLaren Vale. Coating tannins, excellent length, concentrated and complex palate - plums, spice and dark fruits abound.

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.
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.
Deep black core with an intense purple rim. The nose shows great intensity of blackberries and plum with a cedar dark chocolate edge. A seamless full bodied palate showing a complex kaleidoscope of black fruits that are not intrusive but mingle harmoniously with the subtleties of the oak.
This wine possesses elegance and fruit purity; the tannins are evident but well balanced producing a ‘silk pillow’ mouth feel that is long and persistent.
Consistent with the warmer vintage in 2003, the lifted nose is supported by ripe black fruit characters on the palate. Very soft tannin structure gives a supple mouth feel, an excellent food wine.
