The Knaggs family connection to the King Valley is a long standing one. Three generations ago, Trevor’s grandfather came to the King Valley which was in the 1930’s & began farming sheep. His father followed in his footsteps but later moved to cattle farming.Today however, it’s grapes that keeps the connection alive! A relatively recent addition to the King Valley wine region, King River Estate was born in 1990 after owner and winemaker Trevor Knaggs, with the assistance of his father Colin, planted the first vines – five acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and to be followed by Merlot. The first vintage to be sold was 1994 Vintage ,which set the ball rolling for King River Estate and since then the vineyard has built a solid reputation for producing elegant, high quality wines which are food friendly. – Description from markomkc

    golden color. Burst of pinapple and butteriness and a hint of apples and pears on the nose. The palate explodes with the same refreshing fruit flavors surrounded by the butteriness that gives this wine a rounded and soft impression. However the butteriness is not overwhelming being kept in good balance by the crisp acidity and slight minerali... Read More
