Winemaker Notes

This wine forms part of Clarendon Hills' "1er Cru" classification.

The most densely structured of the Grenache's thus far. Recessed and slow to emerge from its shell – The Kangarilla vineyard offers majesty in both extension and girth. The depth of savory, but fresh fruit within the extract remains with this vineyard for well over 15 years. Cleanliness and character define this site. More backward than the Blewitt Springs or Onkaparinga – it is almost the slowest maturing wine in the varietal domain.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Supple, majestic and expressive, layering blueberry, plum, green olive, cocoa and clove flavors into a coherent mosaic that trips engagingly through the long and seductive finish.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2008 Kangarilla Vineyard Grenache offers a pronounced perfume of violets, chocolate covered cherries, black raspberries and fennel seed plus an earthy, forest floor and damp humus character. Opulent and full on the palate, it has a medium to high level of velvety tannins, high acidity and a long slightly warm finish.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Depending on the vintage, any of Clarendon Hills’ Grenaches can excel. In 2008, Kangarilla offers a lovely texture somewhere between fine silt and silk. Brandied cherries give an impression of warmth, balanced by herbal nuances and reined in by that fine-grained texture.

Clarendon Hills Winery Video

Clarendon Hills is a small family-run winery based in Clarendon, South Australia. The company was founded by biochemist, Roman Bratasiuk, in 1990. The story of Clarendon Hills is one of passion, dedication and commitment to exception wine. It all began when this biochemist and wine lover decided to produce his own wine. Though he'd never trained as a winemaker, Roman let himself be guided by his refined palate and scientific knowledge. Following his favorite producers and preferred styles, Roman sought to make a version of the wines he loved.

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône Blends with Grenache and Mourvèdre, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style. Whites, often made from Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc tend to be opulent and full of tropical, stone and citrus fruit.
