Overview

Winter rains during 2012 set up our subsoils perfectly with some of the highest levels of moisture seen in recent years. Summer arrived a little late and the vine canopies were in perfect shape for the little burst of heat we received during January. The 2013 Adelaide Hills vintage yielded awesome quality, with weather conditions during February and March perfect cool nights and warm days ideal for ripening.

Expert Reviews

It’s rare to find such an excellent chardonnay at this price these days. Like many McLaren Vale wineries Kangarilla Road has been increasingly sourcing it’s chardonnay from the Hills. The colour is light- medium straw-yellow; the bouquet is impressively complex with nutty, straw-like and stone-fruit aromas plus subtle almond-meal notes. It’s very appealing. Some smokiness from oak is subtly evident. Intense and driving on the tongue with bright acidity, firm grip and aftertaste, and good depth of fruit flavour. Best drinking now to 2017, 12.5% Alcohol. 91/100. Food: mixed roasted nuts; fish and chips; salt and pepper calamari Stockist: Camperdown Cellars Stores Rating 91 - Huon Hooke, Sydney Morning Herald
