A five star winery from James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion, the Kangarilla Road Winery is a bright star in McLaren Vale. Founded by Kevin and Helen O'Brien in 1997, when they purchased the old Cambrai Vineyard on Kevin's birthday. The vines here date back to the 1970s and are generally recognized as some of the best in Southern Australia. Kevin spent 12 years in the wine industry managing wine companies, as well as two years as the international manager of the Australian Wine Export Council prior to starting his own winery. With that much experience in the market prior to forming Kangarilla Road, it's no surprise that Kevin and Helen have enjoyed such wonderful success with this fantastic label.
"Deep garnet in color, the 2018 Shiraz has deep mocha, blackberry and cherry notes. Full-bodied and richly fruited on the palate with nice freshness, balance and structure. Shows nice earthy undertones with good depth and length on the finish." The Wine Buyer, 93 Points
