Kangarilla Road Reds
The spellbindingly delicious harmony of bright red berry fruits raspberries and cherries delight the senses. Pretty and more subdued notes of Aperol, geraniums and lemon thyme peek through a glaze of raspberry conserve. The transcendental raspberry flavours dance across the palate and coat it with a light red loveliness and gentle spice. The wine finishes with charmingly delicious Negroni-esque flavours.
Aromas of Spicy black and red cherry compote. Cherries, raspberries and a dash of anise and cardamom combine on the palate. Fine chalky tannins complete this wine carrying an attractive hint of sweet earthiness.
Dark richly perfumed cherries and intensely fragrant strawberry jelly greet you followed by the scent of perfumed dark roses with hints of tea and orange oil. The palate is spicy and reminiscent of chai tea. Evocative flavours of a rich tagine with expressions of orange oil and truffle notes all entwine with dark sweet berry fruit.
Gossamer blankets of blackberry fruits with touches of red berries intersperse with the rich and enigmatic perfume of crimson roses and exotic spice. On the palate at first the sweet and spicy flavours of poached pears. The charming fruit tannin intertwines with the dark rich fruit carrying the flavours to a delightful lingering finish.
Lovely aromas of blackcurrants, stewed rhubarb, hibiscus tea and wild brambles all entwined with exotic eastern spices. There are also pleasing glimpses of sweet dried raisins and some delicate violet notes. The palate is rich and luscious with dense mulberry flavours enhanced by mixed spices and pepperberries and these flavours last and last.
Intense black plum and spice with subtle floral notes and nuances of perfumed blackcurrants. Multiple layers of blackcurrants have a slightly savoury intonation together with roasted ground eastern spices that elevate the wine beyond being merely a delicious fruit bomb to a grown-up elegant McLaren Vale Shiraz.
Dark brooding black fruits immediately greet your nose. Next the arrival of attractive perfumed floral notes reminiscent of bath salts and then the fruits return as delicious notes of blackberry conserve. The palate is divinely plush with a mixture of red and black berry fruits and again there are floral notes. The tannins are gently mouth coating giving added texture and the dense berry fruit favours linger on and on.
Velvety darkly perfumed with top notes of violets surrounded by deep red roses. There are hints of spice dominated by anise. Hidden amongst the floral notes is an aroma of Victoria sponge cake sandwiched with dark berry jam. Glimpses of fresh spruce are also evident. The palate is all enchanting dark velvet flavoured with mulberries. Thoughts go to a French Patisserie serving berry tarts with a restrained elegant sweetness. Ambrosial.
The nose is all embracing with smooth, mellifluous fruit encased in spicy dark chocolate. The inviting flavours elicit a feeling of a round fullness. The wine is dense, smooth and multi - faceted. Rich dark fruit is layered with complex fruit tannins that linger delivering only the best aspects of espresso coffee and high cocoa chocolate.
