Kangaroo Island Wine Region
What’s that, Skip? Kangaroo Island Wine Region ? South Australia has a stunningly reclusive island that thrives as a sanctuary for animals, birds, plant-life and wine lovers too. Count us in!
It may only be home to 4,600 (human) residents, but Kangaroo Island Wine Region also plays host to a pleasing selection of cellar doors, accommodation places, restaurants, cafes and other gastronomical delights. Local specialties are a cabernet merlot blend, as well as freshly caught King George Whiting, oysters, sheep’s cheese, Marron, and a rare variety of honey. Hire a dingy and go fishing.
To get there, drive through the Fleurieu Peninsula to Cape Jervis where you can catch the ferry (you can take your car with you) or jump on a plane for a quick trip across the water.
|Kangaroo Island is a relatively new wine region with more than 200 hectares under vines. Kangaroo Island wines are known for their strong varietal fruit flavours and intense colours. A temperate climate ensures a long, slow ripening of the grapes. Sample the wines at one of the Island’s Cellar Doors or at the Islands Restaurants.|
|Kangaroo Island Wine Region is only 13km off the South Australian mainland. At 4405km2 the Island is seven times larger than Singapore.
