Kilikanoon has selected premium parcels of Shiraz fruit from South Australian regions to craft an unassuming wine of upfront character and appeal. Brick red in color with youthful crimson hues, the nose displays rich dark fruits, spicy plums, licorice and scented charry oak. The palate over-delivers, packing a punch with ripe, spicy plums, dark cherries and quality oak to provide a richly rewarding and lingering finish.
Fresh and focused, offering pretty raspberry, floral and spice flavors on a velvety texture. Finishes with mildly grippy tannins. Best from 2012 through 2016. 1500 cases imported.
The 2008 vintage was a tough one at Kilikanoon according to winemaker Kevin Mitchell, but this second label has turned out well. It's full-bodied and richly textured, with notes of tar and black olive up front, turning warm and slightly raisiny on the finish and marked with a touch of bitter coffee. Drink now.
