The UPGRADE Case – Kilikanoon Golden Hillside Shiraz 2019
- Rich, full-bodied
- Clare Valley
We all know the expression about dangling a carrot in front of someone. But what if this entire case of wine is ‘carrots’ so to speak? We’re talking about Kilikanoon after all, maybe the best producer in the Clare Valley. All you can really do is dangle an even bigger carrot we suppose. So that’s what we did. You’ll get 11 bottles of Golden Hillside shiraz, probably enough in itself to make this case find its way to your cart. But why stop there? We’ve added the ultimate carrot, a bottle of their Oracle shiraz, which is nothing short of a showstopper. All carrots, no sticks...that’s how we roll.
Each case contains the following:
1 bottle of Kilikanoon Oracle Shiraz 2016

From old vines and so very expressive, Kilikanoon’s Oracle shiraz is an absolute stunner. It’s silky smooth with layered olive tapenade, dark chocolate, aniseed and hints of licorice, cinnamon and clove. The fruit spectrum speaks to blue and blackberries and 18 months in a mix of new and seasoned French oak has provided structure along with fine tannins. Superb stuff from a titan of SA wine.

Kickass Kili have done it again. Their inimitable Golden Hillside shiraz is a firm ‘fo fave, and consistently one of the fastest selling wines we bring in. Not surprising, really. Rambunctious cherries and burstingly-juicy berries are just contained by a toasty coating of fabulous French oak. No rush to drink this beauty, it’ll keep the rest of your cellar very good company for a decade, easy.
