Kay Brothers Basket Pressed Shiraz 2017 (McLaren Vale)

Tasting Notes
Kay Brothers Basket Pressed Shiraz 2017 is a deep ruby hue with complex earthy notes combine with rich raspberry compote, aniseed and charcuterie. Lingering in the background is a hint of smoky cedar.

The palate is dense, rich fruit flavours of raspberry, blackberry and plum coat the palate initially before savoury black olive leads into soft, fine- grained and lengthy tannins to finish.

An outstanding vintage with perfect ripening conditions.

Vintage 2017 was set up by wonderful winter and spring rainfall, with 2016 the wettest season since 1992. The abundant rain gave the soils and the entire eco-system a much needed flush after the dry summers of 2015 and 2016. A cool September and October delayed bud burst and spring growth. The vines flourished leading into flowering because of the excellent sub soil moisture with shoots showing good vigour.

Flowering conditions were mild and fruit set was quite good. Disease pressure was higher than average because of excess rain and humidity, however timely fungicide sprays kept the fruit clean and healthy. The summer months were cool, with only 2 days over 40˚C, the vines enjoyed these conditions and canopies were healthy and less stressed than in most years.

The season continued to track much later than normal. However the final ripening period was warm with cold nights, very favourable conditions for flavour development. Setting the scene for an outstanding high quality vintage. Harvest began on the 15th of March, one of the latest on record, with the picking of block 8 and block 11 Shiraz. Block 6 was harvested on the 21st of March and the final pick was block 2 Mataro on the 21st of April, a late one in deed. Yields were excellent across all varietals, colour and natural acidity outstanding with generous full-flavoured fruit characters shining through. Winery Notes
