2017 Amadio Wines Kangaroo Island Shiraz

$40.00

This multi award winning Shiraz from Amadio Wines is a real favourite here at ‘The Vino Shop’, sourced and produced from amazing vines on Kangaroo Island!

This Shiraz is beautifully balanced with a flavoursome intensity that is soft and lingers.

Aromas of blackberry, chocolate powder and black pepper follow through onto a rich palate of coffee bean, raspberry, and red cherry.

This delicious red drop is best paired with cheese, (especially aged hard cheeses like Gouda) or pork belly.

The Finer Details

What does our Somm say?

The Kangaroo Island Vineyards
In 1991, fifth–generation Islanders Michael and Rosie Florance joined with the Amadio Family to produce the first commercial Kangaroo Island wine, under the Kangaroo Island Trading Company brand.

The vineyard located on Kangaroo Island’s Cygnet River has the perfect growing climate.
When combined with careful land nurturing and Amadio winemaking expertise, exceptional wines are produced. The Kangaroo Island range showcases the exceptional depth of Island terroir whilst including generous fruit flavours.

 

This Kangaroo Island Shiraz has a beautifully balanced with a flavoursome intensity that is soft and lingers.

Aromas of lifted blackberries, sweet fruit, and black olive and black pepper spice add interest. This follows through onto a rich palate of chocolate powder mixed with blueberries

 

Shiraz is known to be quite an easy-drinking wine when it comes to food pairings, lending itself to a wide range of foods.

For a lunchtime occasion or afternoon drinks, we suggest a lamb cutlet, kebabs, hamburgers, or an aged cheese platter with salami and prosciutto.

 

Within the context of evening dining and social banqueting, we found the Kangaroo Island Shiraz will sing when paired with barbequed meats, roast duck, kangaroo steaks, slow cooked beef stews, grilled vegetables, or anything with a smoky, chilli or wine type sauce or reduction.

 

Optimal Serving Temp: 16-18 Degrees Celsius

1927
Giovanni found a job as a Market Gardener in a fruit orchard at East Marden and never lost a day’s work from there on. In 1932, Giovanni paid for his wife and son’s passage by ship, to join him in Australia, they arrived January 7th. In 1934, Giovanni purchased what became the family home and land at East Marden.

1936
In 1936, Giovanni Amadio commercially registered his dry table Wine after years of making wine for family and friends. Giovanni sourced his grapes from leased vineyards nearby to make his well-crafted wine from his cellar door in Adelaide. His lighter, drier wine style became rapidly popular with word spreading interstate. A successful production began over time with his family cultivating a sincere appreciation for premium winemaking.

1940
In 1949, he was recruited to become a member of the SA Fruit Growers Association. This led to a continued interest in development of the Market Garden Business through a vendors stall where he sold his produce to retailers and shops.

1985
His subsequent plantings, vision for the region and diligent work lead to his premium wines gracing the tabletops of restaurants and households throughout Australia and overseas. His dedication as a wine producer focused on quality and helped him build an enviable reputation for creating award winning wines.

2005 and beyond
Success breeds success! As the winemaking generation continues with his son Danniel Amadio who aptly named the Amadio range of wines. Sourcing his premium fruit from the family’s Kersbrook, Adelaide Hills vineyards, Danniel maintains limited case production of every wine range to ensure hands on production standards, honouring family custom.
