Kangarilla Road Shiraz Mclaren Vale 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 90 Firm in texture, showing a sweetness and suppleness under the tannins that lets the racy blackberry, cherry and spice flavors come through beautifully. The flavors last on the deftly balanced finish. Best from 2011 through 2017. Wine Tasting Notes Crimson with red hues, ripe, dark berry fruits with plum and hints of dark cherry integrated with nuances of oak and spice. Full, long flavored with red and dark complex fruits finishing with soft tannins.

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

FAB fruit bomb, with a huge blast of raspberry and mint that seemed to last for days on the finish. Strong, velvety and super potent. If you are in the mood for vino with the kick of a Hawaiian Punch Very Berry juice box, it's perfect.

The beautiful dark red color was noticed right away and I could smell the fruits as soon as the pour was made. The flavor was velvety and smooth with a bit of snap. Normally not a fan of Syrah, but I will try anything. This was recommended by a server at an upscale restaurant and I found it wonderful, This is not a really bold wine but would stand up nice to most red meats and some chicken dishes. Will seek out again!

Tiefe, intensiv rubinrote Farbe. Wunderbar typische Gewürznoten in der Nase. Am Gaumen voll, mit einem Mix aus schwarzen und roten Früchten, ausgewogen mit samtigen Tanninen.
