2017 Kangarilla Road Alluvial Fans Shiraz
Aromatically there are bright red berry fruit, especially raspberries and the sweet fragrance of dark red roses and an enticing mix of dried herbs. On the palate bright red berry fruit lead into darker more nuanced berries which finish with persistent dark toasted Eastern spices.
The vineyard Kangarilla Road has chosen is in the geologically significant Alluvial Fans Formation which is located on the eastern boundary of McLaren Vale between Kangarilla and McLaren Flat. The soil here is deep and filled with alluvial material washed down from the hills immediately to the east over millions of years. The altitude of the vineyard contributes to the elegance of the wine displaying lifted floral aromatics with spice and plums.
