Description

This Shiraz stands proud and tall as the flagship of our red range. From our 90 year old vineyard, this old world Shiraz is dedicated to Ken Kies who sadly passed away in 1996.

This wine is a representation of all of Ken’s hard work. He was the first of the Kies family to start producing wine in 1969. Prior to that, the family were vignerons.

It’s a rich old Barossa Shiraz with mulberry, black cherry, leather and finished with light oak overtones.

A big wine with long flavours and rewarding characteristics, full of plumy fruit balanced by abundant soft tannins.

This wine has long been held in high esteem with James Halliday awarding it 95 points, it has won both a GOLD and a DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL at the China Wine and Spirit Awards.

    I’m not a lover of Shiraz, but this is smooth, soft and delicious . It’s my absolute favourite red wine from our Barosa trip in March 2019. We happened to come across this winery whilst waiting for the others to open. Granted 9am was a little early to start drinking but almost every wine and fortifieds were delicious but this one was everyone’s favourite. We take a bottle to dinners with friends and it’s a resounding winner every time. If you visit, make sure to buy an aerator. Theirs is really good.

      Thanks so much for that awesome story Sandy and popping in for the early tasting! The Dedication is a very special wine and made in honour of my Grandfather Ken who would be so pleased that you are enjoying it. Thanks so much for sharing. Jesse Kies 🙂

    Wow! 2015 Dediciation is one of the best reds I’ve ever tasted. Packed full of dark fruit and beautifully balanced tannins. A perfect balance of finesse and strength. Guys, I didn’t think that you could make a Shiraz much better than Klauber Block but, by crikey, you have!

    We took a bottle to a dinner party with friends. After we’d finished the Dedication, they brought out a bottle costing more than twice as much (I won’t mention the name but it begins with P) and rated 97% by Halliday. We all agreed, the Dedication was better……and by a good margin.

    Thank you Kies for this truly delicious wine which I absolutely thoroughly enjoyed. This is at the top of my list from all recent visits to the Barossa . A very smooth wine which simply leaves you longing for the next sip
