2005 Kay Brothers "Amery Vineyard Hillside" Shiraz Mclaren Vale

SKU #1160133 94 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark *Outstanding* Bright red fruits, particularly fresh and vibrant on the bouquet; deeply fruited and long, with fresh acidity on the finish. Inner quote mark (1/2008)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (JM) Inner quote mark (10/2007)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated red. Alluring bouquet of raspberry, cassis and candied cherry, with subtle tobacco and musky herbal notes building with air. A silky, sweet midweight that offers pure red and dark berry flavors and a velvety texture. The tannins are nicely folded into the fruit of this delicious wine, which can be enjoyed now or held for a few years. Inner quote mark (9/2008)

K&L Notes

According to Wine Advocate: "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.'" (JM, 10/2007)
