You are right about the flagship wine of Kay Brothers, there are not many wineries in the new world, even the flagship wines are not expensive, and there are good and good quality and the same score

Kay Brothers (Fred & Herbert) started planting grapes in Amery's field in 1892, and they used only 1.6 hectares, which is a very fine winery.
The winery wanted to keep the original flavor of the year as much as possible, and when they arrived at home, they used both the early fermentation tools and the traditional brewing methods.

Although old vines do not have a legal requirement or definition point that can be called old
But I believe that this wine is 113 years old for vines, no one will be picky about old vines
The productivity of old vines is relatively finer, and some studies have pointed out that this will make the wine more concentrated and fruity,
At the same time, because the roots of old vines are deeper than other new vines, it is easier to absorb nutrients and bury water.
Thereby reducing the instability caused by different years & weather. If you are interested in old vines, you can look forward to more information.

Comments from Robert Parker Reference (RP97)

"Outer quote mark Deep garnet in color, the 2005 Block 6 Shiraz exudes beguiling notes of warm black cherries, raspberry preserves and Chinese dried plums with hints of fruit cake, salami, mocha and licorice.
Very big, full-bodied and rich, the palate is very spicy, densely laden with dried fruits and savory flavors and structured by medium-firm grainy tannins through the long finish.
Mature now, it should cellar to 2024+."
