The conditions leading up to the 2011 vintage were very favourable with McLaren Vale experiencing very mild weather during the summer. We have had some of the best rainfall within the past decade and due to these conditions natural acidity levels have been almost perfect with very good flavours at much lower sugar levels than typically seen.

The wine is from grapes sourced from several vineyards throughout the McLaren Vale region and was fermented in traditional static open fermenters using gentle cap management techniques. The pressed wine was aged in French and American oak.

Expert Reviews

This is the new entry level wine from respected McLaren Vale winery Kangarilla Road – and it is a great buy for those on a budget, with some sweet juicy fruit characters leading the way. It is a simple, undemanding wine, perfect for enjoying with food and friends. Soft and approachable, it would be terrific with pizzas, pastas or an early autumn barbecue. $15. Dark purple in colour with reddish brown edges. Plenty of berries on the nose with a touch of cigar. The palate had a nice balance of blackcurrant, vanilla and chocolate, ending with a medium finish. It’s an easy wine to drink and enjoy and great value for money. Try with crumbed veal cutlets and seasonal vegetables. Reg Ryan
