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.
Bright crimson in colour. Pretty floral notes followed by strawberry, thyme and mint. Rich strawberry conserve, morello cherry and spice. Fine powdery tannin and refreshing acidity.
14 days on skins in open fermenters and 8 months in used French wood. The delicious results suggest it an apposite approach. Hard to think of a better estate grenache than this! Raspberry bon-bon, morello cherry and a lick of briar- and white pepper-doused tannins, sandy textured and thirst-slaking, confer a welcome savouriness. Delicious.
