Kay Brothers Wines

Established in 1890, Kay Brothers is the oldest winery in McLaren Vale still in founding family hands. Kay’s are specialist traditional red wine makers utilising grapes from our own 22-hectare Amery Vineyard. The grape varieties grown are Shiraz (including the 1892 Block 6 planting), Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Nero d’ Avola, Grenache, Mataro and Muscat Blanc. The Kay’s winemaking philosophy is to make rich full-bodied fruit-driven wines (using the original Open Fermenters and Basket Press) with a mix of small and medium oak cask maturation.

What do you think makes McLaren Vale so special?
McLaren Vale has the best of everything – we’re blessed to be a short drive from Adelaide, have some of the best beaches in the country a stones throw away from picturesque rolling vineyards.  Also as a community the Vale is pretty damn special – we love sharing our passion with visitors and you’ll find we’re always quick to recommend a neighbour or our favourite producer.

What’s your favourite wine from your own range that you’d recommend our visitors trying at the Good Food & Wine Show?
Our Basket Pressed Grenache.  We’ve been kicking a few goals with Grenache recently and the newly released 2017 Basket Pressed Grenache is on form. A beautifully versatile wine, its a great style. Aromatic and varietal with loads of character.
