Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Reviewer, Jay Miller - The 2005 Grenache Kangarilla Vineyard is the most overtly fruity and flamboyant of the Grenache offerings. It offers up gobs of black raspberry and black cherry aromas and flavors in its layered, full-bodied personality. There are well concealed tannins which will allow it to have an extended drinking window of 10-15 years although it can be enjoyed now. Drink Date: 2007 - 2022.
Winery Notes
Winery Notes:
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate - The 2005 Grenache Kangarilla is full-bodied and rich with loads of kirsch, raspberries, and black fruits, fresh, vibrant acidity, and sweet tannin, it is best consumed during its first decade of life.

Additional Information

Varietal :
This red wine grape is probably the most widely planted grape in the world. Used primarily for blending, Grenache (known in Spain as Garnacha) lends a fruity, spicy character to famous wines like Chateauneuf du Pape from France's Rhone region and GSM (Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah) blends from Australia. Grenache favors hot, dry climates and can reach high sugar levels, which make it ideal for fortified wines like Banyuls and Vin Doux Naturals. View all our additional Grenache items
Sub-Region :
McLaren Vale

One of the most richly varied and highly developed areas in Australia, McLaren Vale produces intensely-flavored, deep red wines and powerful white wines. Due to varying exposure to the cooling influence of the nearby ocean, there is substantial climatic variation in the region. Chapel Hill, Rock Bare and Mitolo are just a few of McLaren Vale’s fine wineries.

Region :

With the sixth largest wine industry in the world, Australia exports over 100,000,000 gallons a year. Climate conditions vary widely across Australia's many wine regions, creating ideal growing conditions for all of the Vitis vinifera varieties as well as "alternative" varietals like Tempranillo and Viognier, which are gaining popularity. Shiraz (Syrah) is the country's signature grape and the primary ingredient in Australia's most  famous wine Penfolds Grange, which critic Robert Parker compared to Bordeaux's famous Petrus.  Australian winemakers are know for their innovation, pioneering many viticultural techniques that they ritually share with their Northern Hemisphere-brethren during off-season travel.
