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!

A Proprietary Blend wine from South Australia in Australia. 2007 Kangarilla Road Shiraz / Viognier 750ml
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!
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.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from South Australia in Australia. 2007 Kangarilla Road Shiraz / Viognier 750ml
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.
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 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.
