- Cellar 4 - 5 years (2011-2012)
- ABV 15.5%
- Closure: Cork
This is the 9th release of this wine, which has been matured for 2 years in American Oak. Opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue. The nose is perfumed, with aromas of vanilla, confectionary and spice. Mouthfilling palate with vanilla, liquorice allsorts and mocha flavours evident. Very peppery back palate and aftertaste. A generous McLaren Vale red.
Cellar 4-5 years (2011-2012)
The 2005 Shiraz “Hillside” was aged for 28 months in mostly American oak. Deep purple in color, it has an enticing, expressive bouquet of smoke, bacon, game, and blueberry. Opulent on the palate, the wine is full-bodied, layered, spicy, ripe, and mouth-filling. The tannins are well-concealed but should permit 5-7 years of evolution in the cellar. Drink this top-notch effort through 2025. The Kay Brothers Amery Winery and Vineyards was founded in 1890 and continues to be 100% owned by the Kay family. For wine tourists looking for an out of the ordinary visit, the winery is a veritable museum of how things were done back in the “ol’ days.”
Drink 2012 - 2025
