Kay Brothers Block 6 Shiraz 2015

What can you say about Block 6? I trod through it in April, and it’s quite a site/sight, planted in 1892, rugged old vines, cracking red clay in parts, gravel on the lower sides. Winemaking baton passed from the gifted Andy Coppard, who, I feel, brought the wines into a renaissance period, to Duncan Kennedy, who seems to have a firm grasp on things too. History in every glass. Almost palpable. 570 six packs produced in 2015. Here’s a list of all the Block 6 reviewed to date (and I’ll fill in a few gaps later).
