One of Australia’s most traditional winemakers Colin Kay fashions old style high quality distinctive Australian reds. Tarry chewy and fleshy the 2003 Shiraz Hillside has a bit more punch (15% alcohol) as well as a sappy character that is not present in the regular bottling. It is a broad savory expansively flavored full-bodied Shiraz to enjoy over the next decade.

Exotic aromas of blackberry smoked meat vanilla mocha and candied licorice. Fat and velvety in texture with impressively sweet dark berry and plum flavors retaining energy and precision through the finish. Tannins are fine-grained. As in most recent vintages an intriguing sexy wine.

Strong acids lead the mouth feel balanced by a solid core of tannins. Rich fruit lead to a long spicy finish. The powerful acids on the back end scream for this to be paired with a full hearty meal.
