Kilikanoon is one of the shining lights of the Clare Valley, consistently producing leading examples of Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. The outstanding quality of Kilikanoon was recognised by James Halliday when he named it 'Winery Of The Year' in his Australian Wine Companion 2013 Edition.
Made in a true Rhône Valley style, all of the components were vinified and matured individually in a range of seasoned French oak hogsheads for 16 months before final assemblage and bottling unfined and unfiltered to further complement the wines appeal.
Nose: Elevated and brimming full of dark fruits, kitchen spices, savoury meats, dusty oak and just a hint of tarriness.
Palate: Moulded in the style of the great Rhône blends of southern France, the palate has been carefully blended to create a wine of tremendous balance, poise and symmetry, the Grenache and Shiraz in perfect sync on the front and centre of the palate, both complementing the savoury nuances and structure delivered by the Mataro on the finish.
