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.

About the wine

Tasting notes

The 2020 Kaye has weight and complexity beyond its vintage. It is typically spicy and shows lifted rose petal aromas with the usual savoury cherry edge. The palate has fine layers of creamy fruit depth and is driven by fine, gently chewy tannin and fresh acidity. It will begin to drink near its best in four years time and be in its best zone for a decade after that.
