The Kay Brothers McLaren Vale Amery Vineyards grace the rolling foothills of the Southern Mt. Lofty Ranges. Established in 1890 by Australian born brothers, Herbert and Frederick Kay, the Heritage listed Kays Amery Winery celebrated its first grape crush in 1895 and is the oldest McLaren Vale winery still in founding family hands. Today, the family continues the winemaking traditions in the heritage listed cellars.
For well over a century Shiraz has played the main role in producing wines of outstanding quality, depth and longevity at Kay Brothers. The Basket Pressed Shiraz continues this tradition.
The 2015 vintage growing season began with an extremely dry and warm spring. Flowering conditions were excellent therefore optimising fruit set. Mild but dry conditions continued in early summer until mid-January, when we received 33 mm of much welcome rain. The rain freshened canopies and kick started veraison. The final ripening period was warm but with cool nights and no extended heat waves, full flavor ripeness and nice natural acidity levels were preserved.
