Kangarilla Road Shiraz Blend Mclaren Vale Shiraz Viognier 2004

Member Review by pokyueweng:

What concentration! With lots of berries, very forward but big on flowery perfume. Intense stuff. Just a little one dimensional, like all Shiraz/Viognier coming out of Australia. Needs a little extra more character. But at this price, what the heck!

Kangarilla Road Vineyard & Winery is based in McLaren Vale South Australia. It was established by Helen and Kevin O'Brien in 1997. Kangarilla Road is the main road running past the vineyard towards the small village of Kangarilla, the name a derivation of the Australian Aboriginal language and refers to the abundance of resources locally. McLaren Vale is for us the best region in Australia to achieve the wine styles that we want to produce. This vineyard and winery - which was originally established back in 1975 - offers us 30 acres of mature vines that contribute rich fruit characters so typical of McLaren Vale. Kevin O'Brien is an oenologist with 20 years experience in the wine industry. Helen O'Brien brings flair to Kangarilla Road and has extensive experience in the public relations, promotions and fashion industries. Read less

The 2005 Shiraz/Viognier (92% and 8% respectively) was aged 14 months in primarily new French oak. It exhibits an attractive pain grille character intermixed with blackberries, camphor, violets, and bacon fat. This dense ruby/purple-hued, full-bodied, opulent, rich, fleshy wine should drink well for 8-10 years.

Chocolate rich though this McLaren wine may be, it's also got finesse, a perfumed flavor of black currants overlain by violets. Cofermentation with viognier keeps the shiraz fragrant and bright; the freshness enlivens the dense tannins and manages to lift what would otherwise be a heavy wine. Enjoy the contrast of zesty and rich with oxtail stew.

The Viognier contributes beautiful floral aromatics to this wine, and the Shiraz, plenty of black pepper. The palate surges with berries and cherries - taut, fresh and pure. Smooth and firm on the finish. Nicely done.

Nearly black in color, but refreshing for its open-textured, sweet-spicy berry flavors, the flavors hovering gently through the long, elegant finish. Drink now through 2009.

The spectacular deep ruby/purple-colored 2002 Shiraz/Viognier boasts a gorgeous (my notes said yummy), huge aromatic display of black fruits, peach jam, and white flowers with subtle oak in the background. Dense, full-bodied, and voluptuous, with great purity, this compelling Australian red is a total hedonistic as well as intellectual turn-on. It can be drunk young, but promises to last for a decade. Don't miss it! The wine was aged 12 months in new French oak, with the Viognier representing 10% of the total blend co-fermented with the Shiraz. This is an Australian version of Guigal's brilliant Cote Rotie La Mouline, but sells for one-tenth of La Mouline's price.
