Critic Notes

One of Australia’s most traditional winemakers, Colin Kay fashions old style, high quality, distinctive Australian reds. Tarry, chewy, and fleshy, the 2003 Hillside Shiraz 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. Oct 2005, www.robertparker.com

For many, this brought more finesse to the tannins, more minerality and more balance to the ...
