"Deep purple in colour. A spicy and multi-layered herbaceous nose with hints of sweet rhubarb and dark berries. An intense velvety palate showing plums, blackcurrants and dates with nuances of cinnamon, coffee and dark chocolate and fine chalky tannins." -Winery
"Kangarilla Road was established by Helen and Kevin O'Brien in 1997. Kangarilla Road is the main road running past the vineyard towards the small village of Kangarilla, the name a derivation of the Australian Aboriginal language and refers to the abundance of resources locally."
"Kevin O'Brien is an oenologist with 20 years experience in the wine industry. Helen O'Brien brings flair to Kangarilla Road and has extensive experience in the public relations, promotions and fashion industries."
"McLaren Vale is for us the best region in Australia to achieve the wine styles that we want to produce. This vineyard and winery - which was originally established back in 1975 - offers us 30 acres of mature vines that contribute rich fruit characters so typical of McLaren Vale." -Winery
