Plenty of fresh mulberries, red plums and cherries here with cocoa powder and light, earthy notes, too. Plush, smoothly delivered red fruit on the palate with some gently spicy nuances and a succulent, bold finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap. (James Suckling, 2020)

The near-textbook 2018 Basket Pressed Shiraz is a classic representation of
McLaren Vale Shiraz. Scents of vanilla and menthol mingle easily with
blueberries and black cherries on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is
supple enough to oer present-day enjoyment, yet it’s framed by rm
tannins sucient to warrant cellaring of up to a decade, if desired. A historic
estate, Kay Brothers continues to turn out traditional wines of excellent
quality. (Issue 253 End of February 2021, The Wine Advocate)
