Kay Brothers Block 6 Shiraz 2010

Tasted non-blind over two days against 2010 Wirra Wirra RSW Shiraz. Same, same, but very different wines.

Black fruit, raspberry, pepper, licorice and spice – savoury toasted coconut oak  plays a part yet still allows full fruit expression. Full bodied but light on its feet, with a sweep of fine lightly chalky tannin, meat and bramble fruit and a little mint–complex flavours and great structure–but mostly I love the depth and purity of fruit here. So impressive. Big finish and no alcohol heat whatsoever. Integrity and charisma. A superb expression of vintage, winery and vineyard.
