Kangarilla Road Reds
Primitivo, Sangiovese and Nebbiolo combine to produce engaging aromatics of Eastern spices including cinnamon, cardamom and a hint of fresh vanilla which appear instantly in the glass. Followed quickly by the enticing flavours of red berry fruits, fresh sweet hay and forest floor together with subtle rose overtones. The wine itself is smooth, with a taste of gently poached red fruits and sweet spice. Dark prunes and a touch of anise linger mixed with fine slightly chalky tannins.
The wine smells of dusty hay, sweet red berries, spicy anise and enchanting perfumed roses. The palate is lively with bright red acidity carring with it dried fruits, dried herbs and notes of raspberry jubes and other red berries.
Dark red roses followed by sweet black berry conserve with orange blossom on the nose. The palate is lifted bright red berry fruits and hints of spice, menthol notes and a delightful hint of violets.
There is a slight dustiness that quickly disappears revealing red fruit and spice, rich dried currants and sultanas and a subtle nod to rum and raisin.
Gently reassuring and almost velvety aromas of Eastern spiced dark berry fruits. An elegant yet creamy texture on the palate carries complex slightly savoury black fruit combined with anise, dark chocolate and herbal notes.
Delicious rich dark plums envelop your senses but still allow aromas of deeply perfumed dark red roses and an inviting hint of candied orange chocolate.The palate is all about the endlessly smooth dark berries including mulberries and blackberries. A suggestion of high cocoa chocolate enhances the gently spiced beautifully integrated French oak.
On the nose there is sweet purple and black fruit conserve with an edge of menthol, cool green forests and a warm spiciness. Rich dark fruit and blackberry pie marry in this textural more masculine Shiraz and the firm fruit tannins reflect the vineyard's terroir.
