2002 Kay Brothers Block 6 Shiraz

McLaren Vale, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$150.00 Bottle
  • Closure: Cork

An outstanding red that has now become very scarce due to extraordinary international demand. Totally opaque black purple colour – like many of the blockbusters from the 2002 vintage, it is a saturate of colour and flavour. Superb lifted nose, perfumed violets, spice and blackberry. The palate is mouth filling with flavours of spice, vanilla and violets, supported by very fine tannins. Excellent length and depth, with great concentration of primary fruit flavours. Profoundly long aftertaste of vanilla, spice, black pepper and dark chocolate.
Cellar 10-15 (2014-2019)
Alc/Vol: 15%
RATING: 99/100
VALUE: XXXXX/5

Robert Parker's Review
The 2002 Shiraz Block 6 (made from 112-year-old vines cropped at a mere 1-2 tons of fruit per acre) is the antithesis of the Hillside cuvee. Backward and nearly impenetrable, its inky/ruby/purple color is accompanied by high levels of tannin, huge structure, and massive concentration. It requires 3-6 more years to become civilized and accessible. This dense Shiraz saturates the palate with extract and concentration as well as elevated tannin. It is amazing one winery could produce two wines that are so totally opposite. Only consumers with cool cellars and the patience to wait 5-6 years should purchase this blockbuster. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022+. This wine is finished with a screw cap.
