Kangarilla Road Fleurieu Primitivo

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Hailing from the South of Italty comes this savoury, earthy blockbuster style that is pretty close to a South Australian Shiraz with just a bit of Italian personality. For those who like something a little different every once in a while.

Winemaker's Notes

Bouquet: Aromas of lifted spicy tea soaked currants, tea and exotic brown spices.

Palate: The palate has loads of spice combined with tangy raspberries and other red fruits that bounce across the palate. The integrated yet flavoursome tannins together with tight acidity create a wonderful lingering finish.

Drink over the next 5 years.

Kangarilla Road Wine Reviews and Accolades

"Vibrant fresh fruit flavours. The high acidity accentuates the fruit & adds to the grip & structure of the wine. The flavour is unique and therefore a must for thrill seekers." - 91 Points, Mike Frost for the Brisbane Courier Mail, 2011

"Bright & spicy and easy to drink” - Chris Shanahan for The Canberra Times, 2011

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Australian Wine Companion 2012
WINESTATE (2008 Vintage) says
Christmas cake/brandy-like nose and soft, flavoursome, spicy/earthy palate with silky tannins.
WINESTATE Volume 34 (2011)
Louise Radman (2007 Vintage) says
Deep brooding black blackberries, purple plums, fruitcake and dark Belgian chocolate. Full bodied, plush and voluptuous with exotic notes of cinnamon spice and port-soaked tobacco leaf from the Fleurieu in the southern vales.
James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Kangarilla Road swaps between primitivo and zinfandel according to style; this is a more elegant wine, with more sweet cherry/berry fruit and less confronting tannins. Puglia meets Amador, say the notes.
Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
Pale red (true to the variety), this offers a decent whack of oily florals, plenty of spice, dried figs, chocolate and tobacco - a wine with hearty character. The palate's akin to liquid chocolate panforte, richly textured, warming with a kick of alcohol on the finish. This'll put hairs on your chest (ladies take note!).

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Loaded with sweet red fruit and a light confectionery character; fruitcake spice comes through on the palate, and the finish is warm and generous. Zinfandel.
Australian Wine Companion 2010 2009
WINESTATE (2006 Vintage) says
Classic nose - smells like a plum pudding. Palate is thick, ripe and sweet, with a spicy/savory edge.
