Was not enjoyable. Barely finished my glass
Dark, dark purple in color. Very pretty and floral on the nose, with blackberries and violets, and a peppery chocolate finish.
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!
External Reviews for Kangarilla Road Shiraz Blend Mclaren Vale Shiraz Viognier
The Kangarilla Road winery and vineyard are nestled in the McLaren Ranges only a mile or two from the McLaren Vale Township. This location encourages slower ripening of the fruit in their 30 acre vineyard which helps to produce wines with finesse and elegance, yet with plenty of flavor. Some of the Shiraz vines date back to 1975. For this wine they've selected grapes from a particularly outstanding plot of old vines Shiraz and co-fermented it with a small amount (8%) of Viognier and aged it 14 months in French oak barrels. The resulting wine shows enhanced aromatics, complexity and bright forward flavors. The Wine Advocate noted the "Opaque purple-colored" and the "splendid nose of pain grille, violets, lavender, pepper, and blueberry uplifted by the Viognier component." Limited!
A Proprietary Blend wine from South Australia in Australia. 2007 Kangarilla Road Shiraz / Viognier 750ml
Aromas of spicy black fruits with complex citrus notes of orange. The palate has a driving mix of savoury mouth filling layers of spicy dark berry fruits. This wine is full and textured with wonderful integrated oak all combining beautifully with an abundance of soft sweet tannins.
The 2007 Shiraz (92%)-Viognier (8%) was aged for 14 months in new French oak. Opaque purple-colored, it has a splendid nose of pain grille, violets, lavender, pepper, and blueberry uplifted by the Viognier component. On the palate, however, the wine ...

One of my favorite McLaren Vale wineries, Kangarilla Road offers very realistic prices for the quality of their wines. A good value, the 2004 Shiraz/Viognier is McLaren Vale's version of a Guigal Cote Rotie La Mouline. A blend of 92% Shiraz and 8% Viognier, this black-colored effort was aged 14 months in new French oak. A rich bouquet of pain grille interwoven with exotic spices, litchi nuts, violets, blackberries, and cassis soars from the glass of this fragrant, nearly ostentatious wine. In the mouth, there is dazzling ripeness, superb purity, an opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a long, heady finish. This terrific Shiraz gracefully carries its 15% alcohol beneath layers of fruit and glycerin. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
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.
The spectacular 2003 Shiraz/Viognier sells for a song. A blend of 92% Shiraz and 8% Viognier that was co-fermented then aged 14 months in new French oak, it represents the poor person's Torbreck Run Rig or Guigal Cote Rotie La Mouline. It's hard to believe $25 still buys a wine of such marvelous quality. The uplifting nose of exotic apricot marmalade intermixed with creme de cassis, blackberry liqueur, and acacia flowers is followed by a voluptuously-textured, full-bodied wine with no hard edges. While it will not make old bones, for drinking over the next 7-8 years, it is a stunning wine. The 14% alcohol is relatively low by South Australian standards.
