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. – Description from iskicm

  • Hellbent Shiraz Cabernet 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Toasty and reminds me of dried raisins roasted. Spicy and has a little bit fruit that reminds me of artificial sweetness that I did not like. The touch of cab gave it layers that was fun. Read More

  • Hellbent Shiraz Cabernet 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Faint berries on the nose that do not belie the deeply intense mouth feel and rich honey and toffee notes of this monster of a an Aussie flavor bomb. Licorice and dark plum add to the party, with a finish more consistent with a cabsav. Nice. Read More

  • Kangarilla Road Shiraz Mclaren Vale 2006

    Snoothrank:

    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. Read More
