Overview

Primitivo is found growing on the heel of the boot of Italy in a region called Puglia. Originally a native of Croatia, Primitivo eventually travelled west to the USA where it mysteriously became known as Zinfandel. We have used the Primitivo synonym with this wine to reflect its exuberant Mediterranean style.

This wine was fermented using traditional plunging techniques in open fermenters followed by an extended maceration on skins. The wine was aged in a combination of older French and American oak puncheons and hogsheads for 12 months.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Kangarilla Road winery is a partnership between Kevin and Helen O’Brien. While the wines show the generosity of the McLaren Vale region, they also have a unique Kangarilla Road style, the white wines fragrant and aromatic and the reds an elegant expression of their variety. The Kangarilla Road philosophy remains unchanged: “To produce wines that we enjoy drinking – wines that can be enjoyed with or without food and especially with friends.”
