About Kangarilla Hill Wines

Kangarilla Hill Wines are Classic Reds  –  single vineyard wines produced from grapes grown on the ‘Glengrove Estate’  and mostly sold direct from the vineyard.

We are a boutique producer with a brand you won’t find in the big retail outlets.

Each year only about 500 cases of wine are produced.

Purchase direct from the producer at wholesale prices and receive free delivery.

WINE VARIETIES:  Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Merlot, Merlot

FOR QUALITY WINE QUALITY FRUIT is a must . . . therefore  Kangarilla Hill Vineyards are managed to produce optimal quality fruit. If, in any year, the grape quality is deemed not ideal by our winemaker, wine will not be made from those grapes.

TRADITIONALLY  CRAFTED  . . .  hand plunged, basket pressed, matured in new and seasoned French and American Oak for eighteen months then cellared in ideal conditions prior to delivery to consumers.

DIRECT from the Producer  . . .  you won’t find Kangarilla Hill Wines in the big retail outlets. They are distributed from a couple of specialist wine outlets the and sold from the  vineyard direct to consumer’s homes and businesses.

MINIMAL CHEMICALS are used in the vineyards . . .  once the grapes are picked the gates to the vineyards are opened and the sheep move in and eat the grass between the rows of vines. The sheep do a great job keeping the grass down which means minimal chemicals need to be used!

The grapes are picked by a combination of hand picking and mechanical harvesting.

READY TO ENJOY NOW and to CELLAR FOR FUTURE ENJOYMENT . . .

The Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Merlot and Merlot are crafted to be good drinking on release from the vineyard and will develop complexity as they mature.

FEEDBACK from customers . . .

The Museum Collection and Kangarilla Classics released in 2018 were well received and confirmed that Kangarilla Hill Wines are well worth buying on release to drink some now and put some down in the cellar for future enjoyment.

Here are a couple of comments from consumers:

June 2018 – one of our regular buyers in Melbourne reported he opened a bottle of the 2005 Shiraz from the Museum Dozen and said it was magnificent drinking and gave it a FOUR STAR RATING.

July 2018 – one of our Sydney clients sent us a message reporting that he took a bottle of 2005 Shiraz to lunch to share with a group of friends.   It was up against some well established much more expensive wines and was well received.

One of the gentlemen at the lunch was HUON HOOKE, wine reviewer from The Real Review  and Sydney Morning Herald.  Huon Hooke reviewed the wine gave it Four Stars and 91 points!!

Sorry the 2005 Shiraz is sold out now but the feedback from recent buyers (April 2019) was that it has certainly aged well and they are buying the current varieties to put down!

 ALWAYS ALLOW THE WINE TIME TO ‘Breathe’  . . . Kangarilla Hill Wines are sealed with screw caps for longevity and convenience.  We recommend you open the bottles a good 20 minutes prior to drinking.  Alternatively decant or use an aerator.
