Kangarilla Road Shiraz Mclaren Vale 2008
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!
Brooke very much liked it, I not so much, but it was very smooth, more bright than other Shirazzez, reminding me of some Cabernets
Sharp on the nose and tongue, better after some time to breath.
External Reviews for Kangarilla Road Shiraz Mclaren Vale
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.
Why did the Kangaroo cross thehellip; oh, forget it. Nicely proportioned, with the requisite spicy, juicy dark plum and blackberry flavors, fashioned with enough oak to bring a toasty vanillin undertone to the party. Tannins are supple, but present enough to prop up this potently extracted Shiraz.
The outstanding, deep purple-colored 2001 Shiraz possesses all the opulence, fat, and full-bodied characteristics one expects from a McLaren Vale Shiraz. Notes of spice, oak, figs, blackberries, and dark cherries make an appearance in this lovely, pure, textured offering.
