Kangarilla Road Vineyard & Winery is based in McLaren Vale South Australia. It 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.
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.
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.
This wine was fermented using traditional plunging techniques in open fermenters followed by an extended maceration on skins. The wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak puncheons and hogsheads for 12 months. This, our second release of Terzetto is a unique blend of 45% of Sangiovese, 40% Primitivo and 15% Nebbiolo. Here we are looking to balance the intense varietal and structural characteristics of these three wonderful Italian varieties.
Bouquet: The result is layers of aromas including spicy cherries fresh roses, potpourri, and plum with hints of star anise
Palate: White and black cherries, rose hip and spicy plums dominate the fruit profile on the palate together with nuances of cardamom combine with rustic fruit tannins which build, culminating in incredible lingering flavors that seem to go on forever.
