I was born on Kangaroo Island and lived there for my childhood. I went back again a couple of years ago and visited a few wineries. I bought a fair bit of wine and have kept most of it to age. I had a bottle of 2001 Bay of Shoals Cab Sauv the other night and wow !!! It still had a few years ahead of it to go. It was fruity still, yet tight and restrained with dusty, leathery and brooding stewed fruits. Lots of spice and really quite amazing.
Check out Bay of shoals' riesling also. Do yourself a favour and get to K I. You'll hear more about it soon !!!
