This is a very sentimental wine from our most elevated vineyard, planted in 2001, that pays tribute to my mother, Kaye. It’s a vineyard with a stunning perspective over the other vineyards, the winery, house and to the forests and hills beyond. There are some lovely metaphors, no doubt. The site has a lot of quartz and mudstone, a smattering of volcanic soils that have eroded down from the volcanic plateau above, and produces a wine of fragrance, structure and complexity. The 2019 Kaye has wild red and dark fruits with brown spice, earth and terrific density of flavour and complexity. The palate is rich, juicy, full, balanced and flows long. It will benefit from another 5+ years cellaring.
