When Brick Kiln was purchased by the present owners in 2001, they were going to call their wine "Nine Gums Shiraz" in reference to nine trees on the homestead, but their North American partners advised that if they were to try to export the wine to the USA, the name would suggest "dentures" to an American audience. An old brick kiln bridge had been built near the approach towards the vineyard. The partners thought "Brick Kiln Bridge" a bit clumsy, but "Brick Kiln" quite appealing. Easy! The first Brick Kiln Shiraz was from the 2002 vintage. Production continues to be a tiny 1500 cases per year from a 20 acre site situated at Willunga in the southern reaches of McLaren Vale. Immediately impresses with a totally opaque, black dark purple red colour with very deep, black crimson hue. The nose displays good intensity with lifted aromas of ripe blackberry, dark chocolate and dark plum followed by some mocha vanilla like characters. Full bodied the palate delivers rich, opulent, dark fruit flavours of dark chocolate and dark ripe blackberry followed by some dark plum, mocha, vanillin oak and spice. Velvet smooth tannins. Excellent depth with long, dark chocolate, dark blackberry, mocha and spice aftertaste.
