Why do we love this wine?

Kilkanoon’s winemaker Kevin Mitchell comes from a long line of vignerons, and in 2014 was even inducted the inaugural Clare Valley Hall of Fame as Winemaker of the Year. His dad Mort even tended Kilikanoon’s Golden Hillside vineyards - including the eponymous Mort’s Block - for over 40 years. Kilikanoon was named in the Top 5 Wineries of the World (by Germany’s prestigious Selection Magazine) and Australian Winery of the Year, as well as Halliday’s Winery of the Year in 2013.

Reasonable reputation, then.

And this classic Aussie shiraz cabernet blend is a careful selection from their own Golden Hillside vineyards, made to exhibit the classic nature of each vintage. It’s a vibrant, black-fruited, full-bodied, earthy number with a smidge of licorice and spice. The classy oak backs up the fruit with a toasty note, and the palate is powerful but seamless. Seamless, as in it’ll seem less important that the rest of the case cellars for a long time when it tastes so good right now.
