The old basket presses at Kays have certainly seen plenty of vintages. And what that quite gentle fruit pressing provides is gentle wines. That does not mean they can not be big, bold or tannic. More that all the pieces fit together like a glove, as is seen here.
This wine is deeply coloured and the first elements that jump out are welcoming and delicious aromas – it just screams out drink me thanks to an array of earthy, spicy, mulberry fruits and old oak all woven together like a blanket. That continues on the palate, which is generous and supple, and supported by mouthcoating tannins. It then finishes with some attractive tarry complexity which confirms that this wine offers great value for money.
